Health care is a legal right

I appreciate that Bob Jentges (Sept. 8 letter) presents his arguments in a civil manner, but he’s wrong to say that health care is not a “right.” Under present law, a hospital can not turn someone away at the ER, so people do have a right to health care. Unfortunately it’s a very expensive and inefficient way to deliver health care. Dr. Shores is right that we should work together to make the new health care system work.
