Not only would we cover everyone and save tens of thousands of lives, But the majority of people would save money as now they don't have to pay for premiums or co pays, Or deductibles. We also would allow people to have choice in healthcare providers, And have comprehensive coverage for all.
Lets say you make 50k a year and married your paying 12 percent in federal income tax around 6k in if you have no children now lets say its raised to 20 percent your now paying 10, 000 in income taxes 4k extra but now your not paying average health insurance in the us cost 5k a year your saving more than 1 thousand a year and helping people who can't afford healthcare or health insurance.
In 2009, A study by Harvard University discovered that 45, 000 people die annually because they can't afford healthcare. While this number has decreased over 10 years, It's still shocking that without Obamacare and Medicare, This number could've been much higher in recent years. The USA is also the only member nation of the OECD not to have universal healthcare.
It would be beneficial for our nation to have some type of universal health care available. However there are many drawbacks, Primarily expense.
First: Having the government manage health care is absurd. Government is not about efficiency or caring - government is about government.
Second: Why should I pay (my taxes) be used to pay for those who refuse to work or those who abuse themselves (drugs)?
Universal healthcare is too costly. It might save people but something would have to lose funding in order for this to happen. For instance education. Education isn't the best in the United States and if you cut its funding, All children would be a lot dumber and the already boring school would be made worse. If there was Universal healthcare in the United States would have to cut something showing that there shouldn't be universal healthcare.
