Health care is an uprising issue today in the United States. I believe in order for health care or the medical field to succeed in the future that social contract should be enforced. By enforcing social contract, it will allow health care to be more efficient by allowing individuals to assume responsibility for their own healthy by having the ability to ensure health. According to The Enduring Democracy book, " from the philosophy of Jean- Jacques Rousseau, an agreement people make with one another to form a government and abide by its rules and laws, an in return the government promises to protect the people’s rights and welfare and promote their best interest"(Dautrich, 7). In other words, if people came to an agreement about health care being available for all American citizens, the government will uphold this idea and will make sure all American citizens have the right to health care.

In other words, OSHA is used to lay out the guidelines and standards to make sure people get the best health care service.Texas Department of State Health Services is available for people who live in Texas who is trying to receive health care. According to the Texas Department of State Health Services website," there mission is to improve health and well- being in Texas. In other words, Texas offer this service to make sure that it's citizens has access to medical help and attention.
I believe the 9th amendment of the U.S. Constitution really helps the medical field. According to the Bill of Rights: A transcription, "The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people."
