we all are affected by bad health and almost all of us will need medical care. it's like everyone needs firemen and police. what insurance should not be, is you just die if you aren't covered. it's easy to say you didn't get insurance therefore you can die, but this doesn't and woudln't happen in practice. why is it okay for one person to not be insured and pass the cost on to everyone else?

The problem with my opponent's argument is that he is oversimplifying a very complex issue. Pro needs to be more specific on how the government would institute this, and how he could transform private companies into public companies. The US has one of the best healthcare plans in the world for 320 million people, and European cannot apply, because the ones that do have those institutions have small populations.

why would anyone have to transform private companies into public? and what does europe have to do with anything?
why do i need to be more specific? it's specific as needs to be, people ought to be forced to have insurance.
