Feb 17, 2015 Representative David Lifferth State Capitol, Suite 350 350 North State Street Salt Lake City, UT 84114 Dear Representative Lifferth, I can't believe you will not support a plan to use our taxes to help support affordable health care for the thousands of Utahns who presently can't afford it. I ask you to move forward with the Healthy Utah plan which is already a compromise. At least 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 which should please you regardless. 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! Is this what you intend? Please do not go ahead with your 'frail Utah' plan. It isn't even Christian. It does not have Utah citizen support. And it costs all of us MORE! I urge you to support Healthy Utah during this legislative session. Sincerely, Ms. Kathy Schockmel 1055 Thrushwood Dr. Logan, UT 84321-4867
