Daily Prompt: Right to Health

“Is access to medical care something that governments should provide, or is it better left to the private sector? Are there drawbacks to your choice?” –The Daily Post 

(Sorry haha. I typed out this entire post when I was at school yesterday and somehow forgot to click the publish button… I wrote it yesterday, I swear!)

I do not believe medical care should be something that the government provides. It’s not the responsibility of our government and I just do not see how it could ever actually happen. The US government is already in so much debt; I do not think it is in any position to start providing everyone with healthcare. I mean, I guess the government could do something for the poor maybe, but I don’t think it’s realistic to do something like that for everyone. Plus, when you stop to think about it and envision what it would be like, isn’t it almost a little worrying? I feel like it could almost be putting to much power and control in the government… But what do I know, I’m 17.
