To the Editor: Richard Steier makes the same mistake as many reporters when he writes in his Razzle Dazzle of Sept. 27, 2019 of “…uneasiness that many Democrats…have about forsaking their employer-paid health insurance for a government-run program…”

Medicare for All is not a government-run program, it is a publicly-funded health-care program. We can’t discuss these ideas if we don’t use accurate terminology.
