Gerald Lester: Numb to pain

Numb to pain

So SEANC thinks paying more than $1,200 per year for health care in 2016 is a problem (“Under the Dome,” Feb. 4). Perhaps it didn’t hear that the IRS is estimating health care for a family of five will cost $20,000 per year in 2016. Somehow I’m not feeling for their pain!
