Highly taxing the rich and giving welfare to the poor is fundamentally flawed.

NoMagic

As pro, I side with the resolution and am therefor against taxing the rich and giving government funded welfare to the poor is fundamentally flawed. Con sides against the resolution and believes there is no flaw with high taxes on the rich and giving government funded welfare. First round is acceptance, second is opening statement, third is no set style, and fourth is closing statements and no new arguments. BOP is shared in this debate, so both pro and con must prove their stance on this res...

Do you think the government should provide free medical care for everyone?

descield
Vesero

[I choose SPAIN as reference] The fact that the government doesn't provide enough medical care (public) for everyone it's because a lot of people doesn't pay taxes, such as illegal immigrants. They work and they don't collaborate anything with the government, so... Do they still deserve to have free supplies taking into account that they act as a free riders? In other words, they take advantage of the service of medical supplies from the government without paying taxes....
