As a U.S citizen and tax payer, I believe the government should worry more about the welfare of our people and the way they live. Instead, it seems the only thing they are concerned about is, health care is costing them too much money, taxes need to be higher, and they want to dump more money into the war on terrorism, yet they still think they deserve a pay raise. The United States Military is a very respectable and honorable organization, that puts their lives on the line every day, and sacrifices the most beloved things in their life. Congress needs to save a little money, so why not stop paying our soldiers while they are fighting a war? Two weeks later, congress gets a raise, because they feel their jobs are more important than anyone else in this country.
First off, obesity has a large strain on our society. As stated above by the San Francisco tribune, Economists have found that 190$ billion dollars is wasted on health care coverage and work force productivity. Even employers who may not be obese must deal with the strain of a chronically ill workforce, reinforcing the loss of productivity for American Companies. Though some may argue that government regulation is a intrusion of basic American rights that is not the case. Government regulation is to be used to help Americans make the healthier choice while being sufficient.
One of the issues that I’ll focus on is healthcare. Romney believes that healthcare is more than just 1/6 of the American economy. He believes that it’s a source of well-being for individuals and families, and he thinks that there are many good things in American healthcare, but with Obamacare things have taken the wrong direction with its high taxes and extended federal control. Romney believes that it’s better to let the states determine their own healthcare systems. Newt Gingrich is, like Mitt Rom-ney, not satisfied with Obamac-are.
On the other hand, the Republicans representing the cons suggest that millions of Americans will lose their current health insurance, and in addition, companies will lose their current coverage. The Obama healthcare plan will reduce the high-rising cost of insurance premiums by $2000 per family. The Republicans believe, or broadcast that the cost of medical care and insurance premiums will escalate toward a catastrophic high. Getting past the different ideologies, the Obama healthcare plan will help prevent crippling diseases through early detection funding, and offer millions of Americans affordable healthcare concluding toward saving families from overwhelming medical bills, bankruptcy, loss of livelihood, and ultimately save
This system would be financed by eliminating the need for private insurance companies and reduce the amount of money waste on expensive administrative staffing expenses. A single payer health care program with universal coverage would be able to save money by allowing better coordination between providers and a continuity of care that is not possible to get from other insurance plans with an average saving possibility of more than $400 billion a year (Silver,
Cancer, however, would be reduced by implementing the preventive measures of the health care people suffering from the disease could also afford to treat it without going broke. Despite much political bickering, the health care gives a much positive outlook for cancer and opening the door for more people who were otherwise condemned to die from cancer to access insurance coverage. Cancer is inarguably one of the most distressing diseases that could impact people. Including all the health problems, cancer affect a lot of people in the world, it takes a toll on peoples lives physically, emotionally and financially. The patient protection and affordable care act also known as the health benefits is a health bill signed into law by President Obama on March 23, 2013.
The real debate is how can we accomplish the goal of universal healthcare in the most affordable and sustainable way. The United States is evaluated as a wealthy country, yet there are more penurious countries who provide health maintenance, paid through higher taxes. “In the United Kingdom and other European countries, payroll taxes average 37% - much higher than the 15.3% payroll taxes paid by the average US worker” (Gregory). With this data, the only reform would be to end the private health insurance companies of dominant health services, and incorporate a single payer system. Conversely, it is factual that taxes will rise, but the implementation of universal healthcare will better the health of American citizens.
Obama Care is all about fixing some of the flaws we have in our health care system, and making health care affordable for the public. Although we are the richest country in the world no many of us could afford necessary operations such as covering hospital bills for intensive care surgeries for ill babies, or bypass surgeries for coronary patients (Lawrence R. Wu, 001). If the plan goes into effect there will be decisions made by many to seek preventative care; that before it didn’t have health insurance and wouldn’t take the chance of being turned away or racking up medical expenses. Although having this plan would restrict some of the criteria insurance companies use in deciding whether or not to provide coverage for an individual or not in the end I
Would it be better for the United States? In order to make a clear decision of which could potentially be better for a country you need to have a fine understanding of the two kinds, and you need to understand the ins and outs. In a public healthcare system the people of a country pay high taxes to build a nice bank account that goes toward paying for complete healthcare to all people in the country. The high taxes may contribute to the economy by taking a percentage of money out of the people’s hands, but to pay off the costs the people are then provided health coverage that any family income can afford. This may seem like a win/ win situation but there is much more to it than that.
I chose this speech because this rhetorical speech affects me. Barack Obama’s inauguration speech was a historic moment that many will never forget. It was a big step for America and also an important event that happened during my lifetime. Obama talked about various things in his inauguration speech that would affect me. He answered my questions and tried to persuade me that he was ready for this job.
