Letter: McMahon's health option better

Heath care presents one of the most difficult challenges before the American people. However, Obamacare is not the answer. The New York Times columnist David Brooks stated, "The case against Obamacare is pretty straightforward." The law has already generated over 4,000 new regulations, and its "complex structure" could actually result in people losing their insurance. Perhaps most frightening is, since the government determines payment rates, it is feared that the best doctors will stop accepting Medicare patients altogether, which I have experienced already.
Thankfully, Linda McMahon has pledged to replace Obamacare with a market-based approach that will bring more competition and choice to the system. She has pledged not to touch the current Medicare system for our seniors. Linda McMahon clearly has a better way.
