Re: “‘System pales in comparison” (letter, 4-4).
Comparing the United States with Norway is like comparing apples and bicycles. Norway’s population is about the size of Alabama. It is simply not realistic to suggest that the U.S. could develop a health care system similar to that of a small European country.
Our federal government has become too big and bureaucratic to run anything efficiently, including itself. Medicare is a mess, and President Obama is in the process of cutting military benefits so he can preserve entitlements for his cronies.
How can we expect the feds to provide health insurance for more than 300 million people when we can’t even take care of our soldiers?
