Senate bill akin to socialized medicine

A recent column by a local doctor lauded SB 227, a price-fixing scheme that shakes down insurance companies who might operate here. (“State of health care in Delaware” July 21)

So, SB 227 forces insurance companies to charge above-market rates to consumers here in order to overpay doctors for substandard care. But, there is no market for insurance companies in Delaware. Only one, Highmark, operates here, to my knowledge.

That’s “socialized medicine” or, “like it or lump it”!

If elected, I will be sure to shoot down any garbage similar to SB 227 that passes my desk.
