Re"Sebelius pressed on health care rollout" (Page A7, Nov. 7): Numerous articles have outlined how the Affordable Care Act is raising healthcare insurance premiums. The premiums will presumably affect the more financially well-off, as the less fortunate will receive premium subsidies.
We took a trip to Nova Scotia last year and were surprised that their sales tax was 16 percent. I asked our tour guide why so much. She told me that was how they paid for their universal health care. No premiums to complain about, but the more you spend, the more you pay. No healthcare exchanges to spend money on and no computer glitches to use for political gain.
Oh, I almost forgot, no health insurance company CEOs getting multi-million bonuses either.
