In the United States, there are obvious issues with the current health care system; however, implementing a government regulated, tax-funded system is not in our best interest, as proved by several facts and statistics. With the upcoming presidential election, the health care issue has become more controversial and more in the spotlight. Especially considering the fact that there are currently over 40 million uninsured Americans (Messerli). Nevertheless, the proposed solutions to the crisis would only be damaging to the current situation. Advocates of the system tend to be overly idealistic, and attempt to convince the American public of this seemingly free, perfect health care system that will cover each and every American at minimal costs.
Running head: THE PRIMARY CARE CLINIC The Primary Care Clinic Lacey Jaslaine Vaughn March 12, 2013 Strayer University Professor Kathleen Milburne The Primary Care Clinic Discuss the key political, economic, and social forces that may have influenced the development of the clinic. Politics have always had an influence on our healthcare. In the United States, people benefit from our health care system. There are many politicians that are being “paid” in order to keep our health care system the way it has been for years.

I truly do not believe that it should be an uneducated (medically) jury members making the decision as to price yet should be educated medical professionals along with a judge that makes such decision. A uniform federal cap of $250,000 dollars is definitely a start, but is not the answer to what troubles today’s healthcare system. It’s the initiation of Obamacare, erroneous lawsuits, and the pure lack of thought that comes from our congressmen as it relates to decisions from the Centers of Medicaid and Medicare that leads to our troublesome and futuristically failing healthcare system.
It is important to insure that each person in the U.S. receive an effective health insurance plan. Unfortunately, it will never be possible to satisfy every individual, but it is possible to fix some of the issues that were taking place in the previous health care reform. Although this reform is very costly, it already seems to be having some effect on many individuals already. As said earlier, the new health care is allowing patients with preexisting health problems receive insurance and they are no longer getting turned down by medical businesses.

This mass expansion of health care in America must have an effect on utilization, but this effect is not yet known and is subject to vast speculation and controversy. Many people fear that the system will become overloaded and that Americans will be forced to get on waiting lists for care or perhaps deal with providers that are chosen for them. Due to the fact that the reforms force Americans that can afford health care to buy in, however, there will likely be less people cramming emergency rooms seeking free care. Perhaps the most important change in utilization forecast is the shift from treatment of disease to preventative care. The reforms and expansion of health insurance and specials provisions relating to preventative care are designed to get Americans to think about preventing disease before it happens.

I am fortunate to have a good job with health insurance and I am thankful for this, but I also wonder if my corporation will be able to continue to offer this to its employees. In conclusion, there are many unanswered questions about healthcare reform we just have to trust that God he has the right person in charge of the decisions that are being put into place!
I think it is sad to live in the greatest country in the world and not everyone has access to free or even affordable health care. Some people have insurance; some have government help and some work hard but can't afford insurance. When kids are sick, parents should be able to bring them to the doctor and get medicine. When elderly people need medicines, they shouldn't have to go without them because they are too expensive. I think that if we didn't have so many lawsuits in our country, doctors wouldn't have to charge so much and more people could go to the doctor when they need it.
