The care behind health care

The article "Health Care Becomes an Issue for Both Parties," June 27, discusses health care in terms of its impact on political parties. This is disturbing.The author explains how health care concerns might hurt one party or another; how addressing the issue of health care might establish the credentials of one party as the party that cares, how one party might neutralize the issue. Am I so old-fashioned or naive to wish that someone might address the question by asking what is best for the American people? W. C. McGraw, Zionsville, Ind.
