Patrick Henry once said, “Give me liberty or give me death.” Universal healthcare has created a wide split among our nation. Some believe it is the right thing to do, and some believe it will worsen our nation. Universal healthcare is a program created by a government to ensure that every citizen of a nation has protection for themselves. A government mandated health care system has a positive intention, but creates more problems than it solves.
Having universal healthcare in a nation would lower the quality of healthcare for everyone, as every person would be utilizing the same system. If someone had a rare disease which required expensive surgery and immediate hospitalization, they might be out of luck.
Government mandated healthcare would also increase taxes...
