It's a myth that U.S. has the best health care system in the world

To The Daily Sun,

Speaker of the House Paul Ryan held a news conference today, March 16. His remarks should have been spoken on St. Patty's Day as we could then say that as an Irishman he spoke pure blarney. During this news conference he proceeded to lie and be misleading concerning not only his relationship with the president but the score from the Congressional Budget Office (CBO).

First and foremost, let's remember that President Trump is not having much to do with the daily workings of the Trump-Ryan Health Care Plan. Second, Ryan's claims about the CBO scoring are totally misleading. Shame on Speaker Ryan for again trying to mislead Americans when it comes to what his role is in this process.

Sadly the GOP-Tea Party are showing Americans their true deceitful colors on how they plan to govern during President Trump's tenure in the White House. They could not get away with it under President Obama's scrutiny. President Obama was able to call them out every single time they tried to pull the wool over Americans' eyes. Now that Trump is in the White House they know full well that they have the blessings of Trump's cabinet and administration.

Some health care myths debunked.

Myth 1: The United States has the best health care system in the world. No! Many other countries rank well ahead of the U.S.

Myth 2: Health Care Outcomes - Canada 1st, Other Developed Countries - 2nd, United States - 3rd.

Myth 3: Spending Per Person: Developed Countries - $3,814, United States - $9,000-plus.

Cartoon published on Thursday was beneath the dignity of 'news'

To The Daily Sun,

I realize that The Laconia Sun is a liberal-leaning publication, and while I can appreciate many of your daily cartoons, I find the one (printed on Thursday, March 16) very offensive and beneath the dignity of any organization that allegedly publishes the "news."
