Barrasso’s healthcare approach catastrophic

... Sen. Barrasso’s proposal of denying healthcare until a person is dying from an illness is the catastrophe. It arises from the inhumane belief that those who can’t afford to buy healthcare must needlessly suffer and die from an illness that may have been cured or its effects ameliorated.
Sen. Barrasso and those in Congress who oppose healthcare reform need to remember it was one of our Founding Fathers, Benjamin Franklin, who wisely said, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” President Obama’s healthcare bill humanely and thriftily reforms the practice of medicine in our country.
