Our government should make it a priority to provide access to affordable health care to all Americans. Why?
1. The government provides health care for the very poor and the eldery but the working middle class is left out.
2. No American should go without access to health care - if we can spend billions to bring democracy to a country that doesn't want it and hates us, then we can spend that money on Americans. Likewise for the funds we expend on humaitarian aid to other nations.
3. The number of uneducated citizens is growing (what proof Obama won didn't he? Just Kidding - maybe). If we are to be a strong nation, we must make sure that all our citizens are strong.
Early health care is essential for children to learn. Without health care they will not do well in school. We have to break the cycle of proverty and give more people the opportunity to better themselves.
4. We don't need a government administered health program, but the government can provide funding to make private health care affordable and accessible.
Well that should get the debate started.
