Opinion Piece: Health Care Reform Must Be Top Priority
In an opinion piece, Timm Herdt, Ventura County Star state bureau chief, writes, "President-elect Barack Obama cannot afford to put health care reform on the back burner while focusing more urgently on trying to stimulate a sputtering economy." He adds, "There is no more essential component of the nation's social infrastructure than health care delivery. That system is gravely imperiled, on the verge of collapse."
