Fall 2019-What's your vote? Health Care in the US- Should it be universal, government ran?

The United States health care has been a controversial issue for decades. Currently, some people are covered under government health plans through programs like Medicaid, Medicare and Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP). Many of the rest receive health care through their employer, or through private insurance for which they have to pay out of their own pockets, but about 40 million people in the USA do not have health insurance at all.

 Does our current free enterprise system keep our health care top notch and encourage doctors to practice here?

 

Should we have universal health care?

I feel as the healthcare plans are only available to people with the economic means or if they are employed. Other individuals genuinely just cannot afford to receive the proper treatment that can eventually be a cause of their death. I think they should have a right to receive the same care as someone with money.

I agree with your statement because in most cases the middle class gets ignored and the government sees that we have enough money to pay for our needs but most of the time the middle class has barely enough to pay for everything.

I believe we should have universal healthcare in America. This would help people who don’t have money to access health insurance for medical attention. It would also help those who don’t qualify for insurance because of previous illness. This can help the average working class American to be able to have the care they need while also not being severely broke due to hospital and medicine costs.

I agree, allowing people to have universal health care would help decrease the amount of people on the streets and it could also help those that spend all of their money on medical procedures to not worry about that. If everyone has health care it could decrease the death rate of our nation because people can finally get the care that they need. Not having health care can cause people to live life with a huge risk, but since everyone would obtain health care they can live life happily knowing they have the support that they need.

How is healthcare a human right? Someone had to go to school for 12 years to become a doctor in order to provide a service, the service being healthcare. So therefore, shouldn’t healthcare be considered a commodity and not a right, since you don’t have a right to someone else’s services?

You have a right to life in terms of the government defending and protecting your life. The government doesn’t come perform a surgery on you; another person does.

A human right is something that is believe that without any argument should be given to every person. Healthcare is a convenience that we experience. During the 1920s hospitals began offering services based on people who paid. If it was a human right since the beginning everyone would have had free healthcare. A example of a human right is the “pursuit of happiness” that we can all obtain as humans. Everyone undeniable should pursue their own individually happiness.

Having health insurance is important for several reasons. Uninsured people receive less medical care and less timely care, they have worse health outcomes, and lack of insurance is a fiscal burden for them and their families. Moreover, the benefits of expanding coverage outweigh the costs for added services. According to a study from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, under a single-payer system, in which all citizens are guaranteed a right to health care, total public and private health care spending could be lowered by up to $1.8 trillion over the next 10 years due to lowered administrative and prescription drug costs.

Health care for all is a good choice because other countries have cheaper health care than us. U.S. spends more money in health care and steal from the sick

In a video, Cuba has cheap health care and helps other people outside their country. They say Cuba is a piece of hell but they even care for other people.

I believe that U.S. is a country that helps and cares, but there are times the country we live in doesn't help so much.

Healthcare should be affordable to all people because managing your health is a necessity. No one should be able to not recieve proper healthcare just because they can't afford it. Everyone should be able to recieve proper healthcare without having to worry about the cost or medical troubles they should have in the future.

I support healthcare for all because everyone should have the right to receive health even if they can’t afford it. Having healthcare for everyone would benefit the country because more people are gonna be healthy and happy which brings positive vibes. Adding to my main argument some people can’t afford healthcare and when they get sick they don’t have anyone to go to because they don’t have health insurance and that means more deaths which isn’t beneficial for anyone. In conclusion health care should be given to everyone because everyone needs to be able to rely on something when they’ve gotten sick.

I strongly believe that healthcare should be free and for all. The main reason why I believe that healthcare should be free and for all is because of the fact that the rate of poverty has drastically increased over the past few years.

I maintain the thought of equality, therefore, we all deserve free healthcare and for everyone.

I believe that healthcare should be universal because the last thing sick people should be worrying about is how they’re gonna pay for their medical bills. The healthcare system was meant to be a safety net for the middle class but like every other system those with excess continue to steal from people who have nothing to take from. Insurance companies should not cut corners and pinch penny’s when people lives are at stake. They know how dependent people are of their healthcare and they still deny thousands of people for having preexisting condition that were most likely unaware of. The motivation of private insurance to make medical advancements should not come from the money they saved from turning people away and leaving them to fend for themselves.

I agree, your comment is strongly true and informative. There is many low and middle class citizens that worry every day on how they will pay their hospital bills.

I feel that this is the right way to go since it’s obvious people without enough money to afford healthcare and it’s killing people. Some can’t afford medication to help them get better.Its easy to by pass this since the government won’t pay the doctors money for free healthcare to people in their country. The amount of lives that could be saved by free health care could be astronomical. The opportunities for this is endless. Peoples lives are getting saved for little to no cost no matter what. It’s evident that the healthcare expenses aren’t even affordable to Most of the country without Heath insurance.The health insurance itself is not fair to people. This makes the heath insurance a valuable source and they have the power in health insurance they levy people’s lives . It’s sad to see families get torn apart from health related issues and they can see their own family dying. This is why i vote for health care for all.

First of all, universal healthcare is a system in which the federal government provides that offers quality health care to all citizens regardless of their ability to pay. Saying this, it is obvious the United States is the complete opposite. If you do not have healthcare, you must pay, leaving many in debt, and even on the streets. When you look at other places like Cuba, Canada and even Europe, it is proven that their lifespan is longer than american’s by 3-4 years. Although some of these countries’ economies may not be the best, at least they care enough for their people’s health. They know that in order for a country’s economy to function is for people to be healthy. Why? Because they are the ones that work. They are the foundation in a country. So why does the US perform the opposite? Simple answer. They make money off the sick. Therefore, they will continue to do so, showing their greediness instead of the humanity and empathy.

The United States government was established to work with and for its citizens. However, nowadays those believes seem to be far too distant. Why doesn’t the government want to establish free healthcare? Human beings are prone to get sick but it’s not like we’re signing up to become ill. Moreover, doctors and healthcare’s nature is to help people. Therefore, why shouldn’t it be free? Doctors study for years to help and cure humans while we try to avoid falling on our death bed. Moreover, it’s extremely unreasonable for any humanbeing to have to choose between loosing all their belongings and become flooded with debt or taking their last breath. We shouldn’t have to be struggling with our health while doctors and health insurance companies benefit from our struggles.

Canink that health care should be free for everyone in the US because some people are born with health issues and that is just something one can’t avoid or prevent. Others do not take care of their bodies and then expect others to pay or take care of them. Additionally, most people in the US are not rich, which means they can’t afford the expensive medications needed to take care of diseases or any health problems that cannot be prevented, these include health issues developed because of age or an accident.

Going back to the people not taking care of their own body, even though it is their fault for not living a healthy life, we obviously cannot let these people die because we have to take care of each other. We need to have that kindness in our hearts and help others.

Healthcare is a controversial topic worldwide, especially in the United States. Many people throughout the world struggle economically and are at a low economic position and they can’t afford healthcare and especially health procedures needed. Majority of people with healthcare is most likely to be able to afford their own health procedures. In the other hand, there is people that can’t afford healthcare procedures nor healthcare and are in need of major health procedures. This is why the United States has low mortality rate, there should be healthcare for all especially for the most needed.

I would choose health care for all because I feel that more people would benefit from this. I think this because many people don’t go to the doctor because they don’t have insurance no matter how sick they are. Knowing that they can receive help will encourage them to go when they are sick. A large population of the country has many disease but can’t be treated or even worse, some don’t know they have a disease because they have never gone to get checked. Providing healthcare will benefit many people.

I support healthcare because America has the worst health care system where people stay in debt possibly till the day they die .Its unfair how the government doesn’t pay or cover for most expenses when someone is in need. Many people struggle with payments like bills ,home expenses,food, children needs , etc. low income people are struggling on paying anything and when they get in a problem or get hurt they won’t have enough money . If the healthcare system is like Canada’s people won’t have debt as much and they won’t have to worry about doing procedures on their own . When people do their home medical care they get hurt or can get a disease . People die every day and some die because they don’t get the proper care.

While it is true that private health care causes competition, thats not what health care is about. It’s simply about helping people so they feel better and are healthy.

The reason for low prices is because the government forces those drug companies to accept whatever payment amount the government is willing to offer. And guess where the drugs were produced.

There should NOT be universal healthcare, because everyone should be able to choose wether they want private or public insurance. There are 294.6 million in America that do have insurance and has increased by 2.3 million between 2016 and 2017. There are more people insured than uninsured. Therefore, the government will be giving free healthcare to a lot of people who can already afford it. Furthermore, having universal healthcare will cause taxes to increase tremendously. For example, France has universal healthcare and their taxes are 30%. However, I do believe that health care is America should be priced lower. For the people who can afford healthcare their can be a government operated program for them, just like the affordable care act. Lastly, as we witnessed in the documentary Sicko having universal health care causes long waits just to get medical attention.

I believe we should not have universal healthcare. Funding universal healthcare could increase federal spending by $32.6 trillion over the first ten years. It would increase the wait times in hospitals so if the patients aren’t dying from not having healthcare, they could potentially die from waiting 8 hours for proper care. Providing universal healthcare would nonetheless increase taxes meaning instead of paying the government 15%, workers would pay about 40% straight from their paycheck. Free healthcare would also lower the quality of care and make a shortage of doctors. Medicaid and other programs that help with medical costs are available for low income families.

But then there wouldn't be money to find possible cures for diseases if there's no money being given to the people that work. Universal healthcare is great for the people but it'd also be good for the people to have cures for diseases that could cost them their life.

I feel as though we should take care of ourselves because although you might get more health care attention it saves a sufficient amount of money to just take care of yourself. Nowadays health care is very expensive and the doctors don’t really do what they should be doing as far as taking care of you. Healthcare basically lie to us when they say they can cover so much of what we need to be treated because almost everyone gets denied. Even though you can’t really cure yourself or take of yourself, it’s best to take care of yourself because you can understand what situation your in and be able to notice things about yourself. Doing your research is very important and knowing yourself well could also help you with taking care of yourself.

I disagree because what if a person has a condition or illness that is unknown? The individual will not know what to do to take care of themselves. If the person mistakes their condition for a different condition and decides to take meds, they could possibly die if their actual illness does not associate with that medicine.

Health care in the US should not be government ran. This is because when the government gets involved into situations everything goes at a slower pace and not efficient for the citizens.

I agree very much with your argument. When the government becomes too involved in the problems of the people everything runs slower and is never efficient. The idea of our government was made so that the government does what the people want, this idea has obviously failed. The government is corrupt and they constantly do what they want instead of what we want.

If we give everyone free health care it would be very bad in my opinion. As it is unfair for people who worked hard with their job and getting their own safe health care. And the hospitals would be overpacked and their wouldn’t be a point for insurance companies. As i think people without healthcare don’t work for it as people with health care. As more than half people in the United States have healthcare and don’t have worry about their healthcare bills and expenses.

I disagree with you because by your logic, it’s unfair for student debt to be paid off by the government because people worked hard to pay it off, this thinking is wacky. Healthcare should be a fundamental right for EVERYONE regardless of whether they can afford it or not because that is not the point, money should not be the motive but instead it should be that all citizens have the best care they can get. And in the documentary Sicko it shows how many people didn’t have to wait HOURS to get treated and it also showed how a couple went BANKRUPT because of their healthcare provider and how a man could only attach one finger because he couldn’t afford it while in other countries they are not denied the basic care they need and are not denied the life saving treatments they require because it’s free for them and they don’t have to worry about how they’re gonna pay for their bills or if their insurance will cover it

Of course we can take care of ourselves. People just abuse the insurance. As the video stated, people apply to insurance after they have been diagnosed with something because then they don’t have to waste their own money. People even go as far as to lie about them not knowing that they have a pre-existing condition to get the insurance. Furthermore, when the people have control over the healthcare they can balance out what medical procedures are or are not needed.Finally, if we take care of ourselves we would be practicing preventive care and not need to go to the doctor as much as we do.

I decided to join the side that is not universal which states we can take care of ourselves because I don’t believe in the health care system.I believe that the government doesn’t really care about the needs of the people they just want the money and if you can’t afford it they will deny you. Sometimes when the Health care programs come one tv they try to make it seem like they really care about your health needs I think they do this to persuade people into joining the universal health care so if some of them have money they can take their money and if they don’t deny them treatment or send them something like a bill that doesn’t make sense. They want you to stay sick because I guess that’s how they make their money in general. Also, they make prices go up for medicines that they know a lot of people really need.

I believe that the government sometimes support one claim but not go through with it the whole way. Such as the necessity of health care for the 9/11 rescuers. Care was only provided for the people that were in the city and were involved in a rescuing team payed by the government. While the people who volunteered to help and people affected by the incident weren't provided care because " that was their choice and we didn't obligate them to help". Like yeah maybe they didn't have to help but that accident was your (government) fault because you didn't have the security and preventive care for these situations (airport security).

Back in the old days people didn’t go to the doctors or hospitals over small things, they just died. It’s just natural selection picking those who can’t survive and leave those who can. Healthcare should not be free for everyone, if you can afford it, good for you, if you can’t, then oh so be it, find your own way to better your health. Healthcare is not and should not be a right, it should be a privilege that only those who can afford it deserve it.

I personally think that the government should run our health care. If everyone has free healthcare there would be chaos. We have adapted to the current insurance situation of America, and we all know that we take anything that is free. Americans are known for greed and irresponsibility, (and I'm not saying everyone is) and if we are given health care of all things, emergency rooms and clinics will be flooded with people who go to the doctor just to go.

Although everyone deserves the right to free healthcare, there are many reasons as to why we should continue to pay for our own bills. One reason as to why i don't support free healthcare is because the US will be in an even deeper debt than we already are because the government would have to pay for everyone’s medical bills and medications. Also, doctors wouldn’t be getting paid as much which will probably discourage people from being doctors due to the decrease in pay. One last reason as to why i don't support free healthcare is due to the long waits that patients would have to encounter. In the video that we watched, it stated that people would wait up to 6 months to get a free check up when they could have gone to a clinic to get checked out for a smaller fee than a hospital.

I think we should keep the health care system the way it is because if we change it, it will take forever to transition. It will also cause the country to be in even more debt. Keeping health care the way it is, will encourage people to stay healthier so they don’t have to pay more money.

Because Healthcare is expensive and can take everything from you which isn’t fair. Some people can’t pay hospital or even the bill. I personally think that we should take care of ourselves because health care isn’t helping us with our necessities and the needs. Health care think is okay to take everything from you leaving you with absolutely nothing or debt. Healthcare does people wrong with declining and not paying the bills like they are supposed to. Leaving people stuck financially.

Health care is a very controversial topic. Yeah there are both good and bad points in health care but in my argument the problem overrule the benefits. Health care can allow people to have a backup plan when they cant afford there medical bills. But there is cases where health care businesses can revoke there money and dump money problems on you. Or you could be denied the care you need because a preexisting condition where they are making it your fault in having that condition. To me health care just makes more unnecessary arguments for being accountable to be paid the money. If people could take care of themselves by going to annual doctors appointments they could have preventive care and live a healthier lifestyle. Even if they are using their own pocket money to pay for these visits, the money that you would have had to pay for a condition or injury you could have prevented would definitely cost more.

And also there is the part where you can get health plans from where you work. Such as Whole foods where their employees get money accumulated.

Catastrophic healthcare is the only thing I believe we should guarantee to people without insurance.

There is not enough money in the world to provide free healthcare for the common cold and other elective healthcare. It's funny how people always find money to buy Cell phones, alcohol, cigarettes, drugs, etc. etc. but when it comes to their health, they want others to foot the bill.

Everyone should pay for part of their healthcare because everyone has money they use for their vices.

You will notice how the Democrat (Socialist) Party never talk about catastrophic healthcare when crying about people dying without insurance. It's all about politics and votes to them. They refuse to compromise with the GOP when it comes to common sense Healthcare.

They will see America go bankrupt as they force through their Socialist agendas.

I don’t believe we should have universal healthcare for free. Because free health care has been seen as unsanitary and less efficient. There is even people who are traveling to places where healthcare isn’t free because obviously free health care isn’t working out. The patients aren’t treated properly and as quickly as they should be. Even though you do have to pay a lot for healthcare it’s better that way because people get more efficient treatments and medical attention.

Although you make a valid point that treatments and medical attention would be less efficient simply because it would be free, its better then not receiving anything medical attention at all.
