Do you think health care is a right or a privilege? While most would consider it a right, I consider it a privilege. As Americans, you can purchase health care coverage that can be tailored to your needs or you can receive these benefits through your employer. However, it is not a right, as it is not guaranteed to everyone. In fact, if it were guaranteed to everyone, this would be the push towards universal health care. Listen to this debate (featured in the video below). In fact, we should be addressing the high cost of health care, and how we can lower the cost in a common sense fashion.
Health care is a privilege, as there are many Americans who choose whether or not they want health care coverage. Some cannot afford the coverage, while there are some who can afford coverage. It is the choice that many have to face in the morning. If it is a right, then prepare yourselves for long waiting lines for life saving procedures, physicians having to choose whether or not they can practice in this country, and losing the life saving innovative procedures that America is known for.
