Feb 17, 2015 Representative David Lifferth State Capitol, Suite 350 350 North State Street Salt Lake City, UT 84114 Dear Representative Lifferth, For the thousands of Utahns who can't access any affordable health care, I ask you to move forward with the Healthy Utah plan. Healthy Utah completely closes the coverage gap and also brings millions of dollars back to Utah. At the same time, the plan promotes individual responsibility and supports private markets. If Utah does not address the coverage gap, thousands will continue to delay important health care decisions. Failure to receive needed health care can lead to enormous costs for both the patient and health care providers. These costs are then passed on to all Utahns in the form of increased premiums and higher taxes. Further, Utah taxpayers are already paying Federal taxes for the Affordable Care Act. Healthy Utah will bring more of those taxes back to Utah where they will benefit Utahns and create jobs! The majority of Utahns support Healthy Utah--represent the wishes of the citizens. I urge you to support Healthy Utah during this legislative session. Sincerely, Mr. David Smith 9944 S. Sandridge Dr. Sandy, UT 84092-3666 (801) 572-0346
