Lost faith

GREENVILLE — To the editor:

Medical care in America

I have lived long enough to see the “worst medical care” in history.

The best “trained doctors,” “best medical equipment,” “most costly medical centers in the world, sitting in our “front door.” Yet medical care in America has hit “0.”

President Obama is working to get medical care insurance for the American people. One would have to ask “Why?”

Who can see a doctor, have surgery or even get a hospital room?

The $12.5 million hospital bond recently passed with only 512 voters in favor of the bond. Do people have confidence in medical care? One would have to ask, why medical insurance.

Medicare insurance is treated as charity. We are asked, “Do you have insurance?” before we can get an appointment.

Would I go to China or Mexico for major surgery? Only if I could get a discount ticket.

I would like to say, “Why $12.5 million bond for improvement to ER and the third floor of the hospital?”

Do I have “faith in medical care today?” The answer today is “No.”

Truly yours,

Dorothy Poole
