Health care reform necessary

Published October 16. 2010 09:00AM

Dear Editor:

Recently McDonald's threatened to drop its health care insurance for its employees. A recent cartoon in the Times News referred to this threat.

It might be noted that one of the main plans McDonald's offers its employees requires them to pay roughly $730 a year for health benefits up to $2,000. Since one night in the hospital or one MRI may cost more than $2,000, this is only a little better (if that) than no insurance at all.

It is this kind of plan that makes the health care reform so necessary.
