I can't help but express my satisfaction to see APA leaders moving more
clearly toward supporting a single-payer insurance system in the United States
as described in your June 16 issue. That issue recounted the annual meeting
speech of APA President Steven Sharfstein, M.D., who advocated such a plan.
This confirms what I always believed—that Americans will do the right
thing after trying everything else.
The bad news? Brazil continues to copy the nonsystem of employer-sponsored
health care with managed care and all that is so common in the United States.
But I am sure this will also change.
