Letter: Charity hospitals, not Obamacare

How can we have had millions of “uninsured” in Louisiana when we have had a charity hospital system for many years in which all one had to do was show up and receive treatment?

Here in Lafayette, charity hospital had the only 24-hour emergency room for a long time. In place of Obamacare, I recommend that each state develop a charity hospital system. If you must involve the U.S. government, let it pay half. This appears to be simple, and it would work.
