In a May 27, 2023, letter to the editor in the Portland Press Herald, Michael Bacon of Westbrook discusses the results of a recent survey commissioned by Consumers for Affordable Health Care about Maine voters’ views on health care affordability and accessibility.
“There is broad agreement that our health care system is not serving us well. Too many of us are uninsured or underinsured and forgo or seriously compromise the medical care that we should all be getting. Compared with our peers in other wealthy countries, we spend more, are less healthy and die earlier.
With a recently published survey of Maine voters, we can now quantify the level of our discontent.”
