I read pediatrician Alex Blum’s Sept. 26 article, “America’s broken health care breaking lives” (reprinted from the Los Angeles Times) with great interest. On television and in newspapers, I have seen reports of many Americans protesting against President Barack Obama’s health care plan. Don’t they care about health care for their less economically fortunate neighbors? And insurance companies seem to want to protect their own interests by any means.

As president, George W. Bush started the Iraq War but didn’t seem to care a bit about improving America’s health care system. Those Americans against Obama’s health care plan don’t want to pay extra tax money to help their needy neighbors, yet look at how much tax money they’ve been spending on the unnecessary war that Bush started.

The entire world should support President Obama’s plans and efforts to change the world, including (improving health care and) freeing the world of nuclear weapons.
