Baldwin-Whitehall residents made their presence known in the pages of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette on Thursday—well, at least one page, in the Opinion section.
Writes Ed Larkin of Baldwin Borough, "When will it be time to settle this squabble by providing a single-payer, government-run (nonprofit) system that provides health care at one-half the cost like all the other countries in the world?
"We don't remember reading much about power struggles for providing health care in other countries."

Writes Walt Schran of Whitehall Borough, "As an individual Highmark health insurance subscriber, I received my recent bill with an 8-percent increase. Upon contacting Highmark, the reason provided is 'the rising cost of health care.'
"Whom do we thank for this increase? Highmark, so that it can fill its coffers with profits for its continuing battle with UPMC? ... Obamacare?"
