I read with interest the Aug. 18 piece by Sherman Frederick on the ill-conceived Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, and how wise it would be to go back to the old system, which he described as “highly functioning.” As a former newspaper publisher, he described the new system as “socialized medicine,” which is a misrepresentation clearly intended to be inflammatory. Words do matter.
