universal health care does not work. in canada it can take 10 months to see a doctor. It will cost much more in taxes then if we leave it the way it is now.
Davethefave

Pro

I agree because that is just wrong. Some people could be on their death bed and they would not know. Then just one day they fall to the ground and people don't know why they had died.

there is no reason that hard working, constantly exercising americans should have to pay for health coverage for a life long smoker
Davethefave

Pro

Exactly why pay when they are killing them selves. If they are a smoker like you said then it's their own fault of them dieing.

universal health care would just be one more thing the government would mess up and make less efficient. Medical bills are very expensive but doctors had to go to school and intern for up to 12 years. So naturally they should make good money. Universal health care would set us back in medicine not forward.
Davethefave

Pro

Exactly. I agree. If the people have to wait 10 months to see a doctor. And when they finally see the doctors they have to pay so much money that should not be paid. They should not have to pay at all for the poor treatment they are given. The doctors do go to school for a long time but what's the point they see patients for very little time. While they were in school they should of learned about the rights people are given.
