To the Editor:

Your article ( A Drumbeat on Profit-Takers, March 19, 2012) captures Dr. Relman’s and Dr. Angell’s decades of responsible criticism of the major corporate entities that have disfigured American health care: the private insurances companies and Big Pharma. As we once again approach national elections, the pertinence of the views of these two medical giants should ring out loud and clear: The initiation of a single-payer national health program, an improved Medicare for all, is not only desirable but urgent.
