Health care change is needed; old system bad for seniors

To the Editor:

— I am 63 years old. My wife and I currently pay $18,284 per year between premiums and deductibles for health insurance before we can see even a single dime of coverage.

The current system is driving seniors into poverty.

Why do the Tea Party Republicans want to preserve such a tremendous burden on people who cannot afford it? The Affordable Health Care Act makes sense.

The reason why the websites have glitches is because so many people are trying to sign up for it.
