“Is access to medical care something that governments should provide, or is it better left to the private sector? Are there drawbacks to your choice?” –The Daily Post
(Sorry haha. I typed out this entire post when I was at school yesterday and somehow forgot to click the publish button… I wrote it yesterday, I swear!)
I do not believe medical care should be something that the government provides. It’s not the responsibility of our government and I just do not see how it could ever actually happen. The US government is already in so much debt; I do not think it is in any position to start providing everyone with healthcare. I mean, I guess the government could do something for the poor maybe, but I don’t think it’s realistic to do something like that for everyone. Plus, when you stop to think about it and envision what it would be like, isn’t it almost a little worrying? I feel like it could almost be putting to much power and control in the government… But what do I know, I’m 17.
