Healthcare reform dominated the news cycle the past few weeks, while Congress considered whether to keep or replace the Affordable Care Act. Much of the debate centers on the question of whether it’s the federal government’s job to provide healthcare to its citizens.
Supporters of the federal government guaranteeing the right to medical care argue that it is a universal right, and to ensure this right, the federal government must oversee it.
Opponents of having the federal government guarantee the right to medical care highlight that private insurance companies, employers, and individual state governments are the proper providers of healthcare support for their communities.
What do you think? Should the federal government ensure that all citizens have access to healthcare?
