Description:

This paper examines the current debate about whether or not universal health care will create a positive impact or a more negative impact on the American health care system and on society in general. The writer argues that, while other countries have viewed health care to be a basic right, the United States has wrongly treated health care as a privilege. The writer urges the public to elect officials who will support the achievement of universal health care for all even in the face of the country's changing economy.

From the Paper:

"I strongly suggest Americans take the initiative to look at where our tax dollars are going and decipher what is more important, billions of dollars of your money being spent on foreign soil or having it directly enhance your living through healthcare. America spends 1.2 billion dollars a week on the war of Iraq, which means six months of the war is enough to fund universal health care for one year."
