Healthy reform

Re "In sickness and in health -- insurance," April 29

Apparently, people are becoming desperate when they will consider getting married to get health insurance. More of us are now uninsured or underinsured.

State Sen. Sheila Kuehl's (D-Santa Monica) SB 840 offers a solution. It would provide comprehensive healthcare to everyone and save millions of dollars by creating a single risk pool.

Building on the current system is no longer working. It will take real reform to resolve our healthcare crisis.
