This letter may be of some use to the general public, with regard to the health care delivery system in this great country. I came up with the following plans for each individual willing to empower themselves with a good health plan that works for them.

Eat less, drink less, safe sex, less gun violence, fewer drugs, think goodness. Any of these plans is cost- effective. The benefit to you and your loved ones, family and friends will be noted. If you plan to continue to live on Planet Earth and in America, any plan will be good for you.

True, we are comparing ourselves with other industrialized nations and their health care delivery, but any of those nations have the sum total of our health issues.

The bottom line is always the cost of your individual plan, and this should be a guiding principle: The best things in life are free.
