universal health coverage in the United States of America


Hello, I will be debating in favor of universal coverage. I believe that universal coverage is better than the current system we have right now. I believe that not only will it improve the well being of our society, but help us economically too.

Personally, I think it takes more faith to believe that everything outside of your window started as "nothing" than to believe that a greater power put it all...

DK and I have been planning to do this debate for a couple weeks now. Standard debate rules apply; first round for acceptance, no new arguments in the final round, no semantics, no trolling, etc. I doubt any of that will be a problem, here. A quick note on the resolution-- the debate will NOT be revolving around the implementation of a gun ban; it will be about whether or not the effects of a gun ban which has already been implemented are positive. I look forward to an excellent debate :D...
