Letter: Kitty Rhoades understands
The off-handed comment made by the candidate running for Assembly insisting that health savings accounts are tax shelters for the rich really got my blood boiling.
I'm self-employed and I've purchased my own health insurance for the past nine years. It's not cheap, but it's necessary. When I found myself newly divorced and without coverage, I picked up the phone and called several companies. I compared their rates and plans and chose one I could afford.
