1)Free" health care isn't really free since we must pay for it with taxes; expenses for health care would have to be paid for with higher taxes or spending cuts in other areas such as defense, education, etc.
2)Government-controlled health care would lead to a decrease in patient flexibility. patients would have to wait long peeriods of time for there surgery
3)Healthy people who take care of themselves will have to pay for the burden of those who smoke, are obese, etc.
4)A long, painful transition will have to take place involving lost insurance industry jobs, business closures, and new patient record creation.
5)Patients may be subjected to extremely long waits for treatment
Where are your facts and opinions??????
I should win because i gave facts my opponet didn't!
For the patient flexibilty one:The universal system in Canada forces patients to wait over 6 months for a routine pap smear. Canada residents will often go to the U.S. or offer additional money to get their health care needs taken care of.
For the one about FRee health care not being free: pretty self explanitory
For the one about patients waiting:Stories constantly come out of universal health care programs in Britain and Canada about patients forced to wait months or years for treatments that we can currently receive immediately in America
For the one about painful transistions:A universal health plan means the entire health insurance industry would be unnecessary. Which means bye bye health insurance
Where is your evidence of Uh being good???
