Thanks to Rick Held and the various photographers for their vision of the future of our health-care system [“My 13 Hours With RAM,” cover story, April 28, 2011] especially if the Ayn Rand fans succeed in dismantling the Affordable Care Act, Medicare, and Medicaid. Now that “a job” instead of a “good job” with insurance and benefits is the “realistic” goal of the collapsing middle classes, how long will it be before we’re all hearing a version of what the folks lined up at RAM heard about glasses? “We ran out of antibiotics, (or sutures, pacemakers, you name it) come back tomorrow.” Will we all be endlessly waiting in lines, needled repeatedly and unnecessarily, powerless to get what we need except from some volunteer we’ll never see again?
