To the editor:
What are the facts? Occasionally, writers have expressed views in articles appearing in the Opinion section of the Journal-World relating to health care efficiency and cost in the United States vs. unidentified other countries. For example:
• Trudy Rubin (Jan. 5) — “Never mind that we have a health system twice as expensive and far less effective than those in several European countries.”
• Randy Supernaw (Public Forum, Jan. 26) — “Incidentally, all those government-run health systems are rated superior to ours and at less cost per person.”
These writings contain no source(s) for these conclusions. Printing these statements without citing sources are correctly classified in the “Opinion” section (in my opinion).
