HEALTH CARE: The government should play a role in healthcare. It seems there is Medicare for the elderly and Medicaid for the poor; surely there is a need to complete the gap in coverage for those that do not fit into either of those categories. I believe the Legislature should continue moving forward in an effort to improve the current system and options for those seeking coverage. I often wonder why health insurance can’t be purchased like an auto or life insurance policy.
