The paper explains why the universal healthcare plan will only serve to exacerbate the already existing healthcare problem in its current form. The paper explores the literature to determine the optimal solution for a healthcare policy that will improve the poor state of health of most Americans. The paper comes to the conclusion that there are fundamental flaws in the American system and, therefore, there has to be fundamental changes in the U.S. approach to healthcare. The paper addresses the need for doctors to provide the most optimal health care to patients in their attempt to cure diseases and save lives, and for the public to refrain from filing lawsuits against the medical profession. Finally, the paper contends that these two changes will necessarily result in legislation that reduces the government's all-powerful and severely limiting role in the health care of the American public.

From the Paper:

"Universal healthcare, while touted as the solution to the ailing health care system in the United States is not really all that it is cracked up to be in fact the fundamental problems existing with today's American health care system are not addressed in the Universal Healthcare Plan and in fact, this plan will only serve to exacerbate the already existing problem in its current form. This work looks to various sources in attempting to disseminate what solution among all possible solutions is the most viable approach in fixing the broken American system of health care. This work finds that the best solutions available are those which address the fundamental problems with the American health care system. Further, this brief review cites the fact that countries that do have Universal Health Care are in no better shape and in some cases in worse shape than the American system of health care."
