Is Health Care a citizen’s right or a commodity to be bought?
Should everyone in the USA have access to healthcare, or is this something that the people should budget for, just as we budget for house payments and car payments. We have studied government policy and the US Health Care System and now in your own words:
Is it the governments’ job to assure healthcare for everyone?
How much should government interfere with health?
Websites with opposing viewpoints:
Proposal for Single Payer Health Insurance 2003. www.pnhp.org/ This site believes healthcare is a right and the US should have a single payer insurance plan.
Rethinking Healthcare, Milton Friedman: www.heartland.org. This site believes the government should stay out of healthcare as much as possible and let the capitalist free market work without interference from the government.
