Why is left afraid of opposing viewpoints

Text Size: A | A

Why is left afraid of opposing viewpoints I have seen a few letters about The Gazette's radical turn to the right. I find it odd. For years and years, the paper has kept to the strict industry standards of four parts left and one part right. You inch over just a wee bit closer to the center and the lefties howl hysterically.

Brava Ms Payette,
- I would add that its prob more about the billing/coding- In Europe, where its mostly govt controlled-and where Doctors are paid a flat annual high salary- and get an incentive for keeping you healthy- its a better system for prevention- people are healthier there and have less need for meds or intervention/surgeries-
The solution is improved Medicare for All, where you choose your Doctor, and can cross State lines. Also known as Single Payer- a Green Party priority.

Frances Payette - Was the medical exam for an annual physical or a follow-up recheck? If annual physical, I would say you have a incompetent doctor. Do you know anybody else that has had a physical recently? I had one two weeks ago. My husband and several friends have also had recent physicals. None of us had any complaints of it not being thorough. In your case, I do not believe the lack of service was due to the system but to that particular doctor. You should have written your letter of complaint to the practice the doctot is part of, not the daily newspaper.
