It is essential for the United States government to provide its entire citizen with a free health care. This system ensures that everyone has an access to medical services regardless to his or her social status. It is an important way of preserving life as free health care plan ensures free treatment to the entire citizen. In addition, it can play a big role of ensuring that there is an improved access to health services. Ensuring that all American citizens have an access to the right health care will in turn decrease health care costs.

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights states that “everyone has the right to a standard of living adequate for the health and the well-being of oneself and one family, including…medical care” (Should All Americans Have the Right to Health Care). It’s the government’s duty to protect the life of all of its citizens; Universal health care is a step that needs to be taken to protect these lives. Some people argue that providing access to health care will be ineffective and drive up the cost. The government should provide access to universal health care because it protects health, it will lower the cost, and it eliminates discrimination from the health care system. First, the three basic rights outlined in the constitution are life, liberty, and property.
Even though there is an emotional appeal to have federally funded health care, the consequences of changing are far too risky. Some may assume that our nation’s healthcare should be given to those who cannot afford it; however, they do not realize that giving out healthcare will significantly lower its value. Thus, the real question behind this entire debate arises. Is it better to have expensive but useful healthcare or to have cheap and ineffective health care?
