Re “Health insurer rates ripped” (Business, Jan. 9): Although I am glad that Insurance Commissioner Dave Jones is fighting to keep health insurance rates down, what he should really be doing is lobbying the California Legislature to pass the California Universal Healthcare Act.

Under this bill, health insurance rate increases would no longer be an issue for consumers because California would finally create a single payer system, in which everyone could choose their own physicians and medical institutions without the health insurance companies involved.
