HEALTH CARE: I can see clearly now

Print Article

Recently, my wife and I had cataract surgery at North Idaho Eye Clinic, great place for eye care. Appointments easy to make and care was great.

My wife was standing in line at a grocery store with a patch on one eye when another lady asked what happened. She told her the story and the lady said “Wow, that’s amazing.”

Turns out she just moved here from Canada and said her father, in his 80s, had been waiting 10 years for the same surgery. Now they say he is too old to do it. Can you believe 10 years?

Do you still want socialized medicine, Medicare for all? You don’t have to look very far to another country to see the effects of a government-run health care system.

Now that we can see much clearer due to the surgery, I think you can see how we will vote.

We can see each other much clearer now and we will try it for another 36 years.
