We hear lots of claims on whether health care in other countries is better than our existing system. Not many of us have the time to personally investigate these claims. How about investigating a long-running government-run health care program right here in America? For decades, the federal government has been responsible for, and operated the health care system on Indian reservations. Investigate for yourself. Look at nutrition, addictions, chronic conditions and treatments, suicide, life-expectancy rates, infant survival rates, diabetes, budget; there are many measurements. Visit www.doi.gov. Troll through Bureau of Indian Affairs for an overview. BIA is responsible for 1.9 million individuals. Multiply the budget by 173 to 330,000,000 individuals. John Miller, Newcastle
