Re: “Vote With Us! The East Bay Express' Endorsements for Election Day 2016

Borrowing money to buy a house, which you can live in and will likely appreciate, can make sense, as does borrowing money to buy an expensive tool to increase your income. But to borrow money for maintenance is like borrowing money to pay for your utilities. Not only will you have to continue paying ongoing utilities, but you will also have to pay on the loan, plus interest, Meanwhile, wealthy people who buy those bonds not only get good interest on a fairly safe bet, but that income is usually exempt from taxation, depriving communities of more income. If BART management is too incompetent to keep up with maintenance (and cleanliness), get rid of them and get new ones, and DO NOT even talk about another transbay tunnel until the current mess is cleaned up. Finally, borrowing billions makes the decision makers careless with money (prime example: the East Span, where they spent 10 times what a much more rational southern crossing should have cost. The quake damage should have been quickly and easily repaired as only one section was damaged, protecting the whole bridge, as it was designed to do.

Re: “The Trouble with Kaiser's Technology

We have been Kaiser members most of the time since around 1959 and have had consistently good to excellent care. Although we've had a few complaints, without Kaiser I would be road kill. I am not disputing complaints seen but would like to see the complaint ratio, PER PATIENT comparison with other HMOs. I also think that, given the current reliance on specialist referrals, it would be important to have some kind of checklist system to be sure that details get covered and not lost, with doc A assuming that some else had done it. The surgeon installing my recent pacemaker had one and it was reassuring.
