Do you think universal health care should be part of our way of life, as it is in many other countries? Will it work? Why or why not?
I believe it can and would work. Our taxes will not be raised any more than without it, they can be simply redistributed (Iraq).
I cannot fathom why whether we have healthcare or not depends on our job. It doesn't even matter if we have a job anymore, it depends on our employer! And more and more employers are either raising premiums and contributions or not offering heathcare altogether, even if you work 50-60 hours a week.
All children are entitled to a free education but not healthcare. Is this not insane?
We are not expected to pay for police, fire or other 911 services - they are incorporated into our tax system.
Universal healthcare works quite well in many places (eg, the United Kingdom). Why not here?
Or do I over-simplify?
Tell me how you feel about this very topical issue.
