The Benefits of Free Health Care in America

Submitted by safah on Tue, 2016-06-07 12:45

Imagine a world without the stress of medical bills and its debt. America should have free healthcare because doctors are taking advantage of their power when scheduling random, unnecessary scannings, people with major illnesses cannot pay for their sickness when they have no control of it, and we have proof of effective systems in nations such as Canada.

Trump vs. Obama

ObamaCare’s goal is to give more Americans access to affordable, quality health insurance and to reduce the growth in U.S. health care spending. The members of both the Republican party and the Democratic party have their own certain views on the ACA (Obamacare), and discuss if they would go ahead with it in 2016 if they got elected for President, or try to replace it.

Ted Cruz's Healthcare Policy

Submitted by 18ChenAM on Mon, 2016-03-28 23:54

**Side note: I personally do not like Ted Cruz all that much, but I thought that his Health Care Plan was interesting, and therefore decided to write about it.**

The most memorable thing about Ted Cruz’s Healthcare Plan would probably be his strong belief in the abolition of the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare). However, although repealing Obamacare is one of Ted Cruz’s strongest arguments, he has a few other plans for our country’s future Health Care Policy.

The Need for Universal Health Care

Submitted by Ramyahmed on Fri, 2016-01-29 16:04

My political issue not only affects me, but affects every American across the nation. This political issue is the topic of Universal health care. Health care is something necessary and basic when it comes to human life. People should not be denied treatment or medication based on their insurance or level of income. Also many undocumented immigrants defer treatment, due to the fact that they cannot obtain insurance, so medical costs would be too expensive. Health care should be a public service such as water, education, and public security.

America's Inflated Health Care Prices

Submitted by henrypotter on Mon, 2015-11-09 15:04

I was on Facebook the other day and I stumbled across a post that caught my attention. It was about US healthcare vs European healthcare, in this instance it was Spain. In the post it said that it would cost more to get hip surgery in America than it would to be to move to spain for 2 years, run with the bulls, break your hip, then get the exact same operation to repair it. How is this possible? If it really is this cheap why aren’t Americans getting all their hips replaced in Europe? After all, if it’s so much cheaper and you get to go on a sweet vacation there seems to be no reason not to.

Research Topic

Submitted by ragoodman on Fri, 2014-03-14 13:38

My first choice for a research topic is cyberbullying, it matters to me on a personally because I see it a lot and I see people suffering from getting cyber bullied and it makes me feel for them at a high level. In Oakland specifically, I don’t think it’s big problem because compared to other areas, it only happens mildly. I hope that I learn why people choose to cyber bully people, If I find a good solution to end cyber bullying, I will take action to try to stop it over all or decrease it at least a little.

Research topics and interests

Submitted by bco on Thu, 2014-03-13 14:35

The first topic for my research project is social pressure. I chose this topic because now a days more and more youth are being pressured to do things out of their comfort zone. Those kids just want to fit in with the “group”. Kids are going to follow the wrong crowd and are going to do things that will affect them later on in life. Why are youths so easily pressured? What is stopping the youth from denying it? It will better society because it will lower the dropout rate at school if more youth decided to choose the right way, they would have more job opportunities.

Crucial points on schizophrenia

Submitted by s_masud on Thu, 2013-01-31 00:32

The most important thing people should realize about schizophrenia is that people that suffer from this disease can live just as normally as you and me. There are still many questions that surround the cause and treatment of schizophrenia, but the main reason there is such a huge stigma surrounding it is simply because of our ignorance and failure to educate ourselves.

Health Care Opinions

Submitted by lm26855 on Thu, 2013-01-17 16:39

In Katrina vanden Heuvel's opinion piece, "The Troubling State of America's Health," from the Washington Post, she argues that the government should not be focused on things such as fixing debt, but try to make our health care system better, and our life spans longer. She also argues that compared to other industrial countries, we are far behind in health.

What's up with Obamacare?

Submitted by katiehance on Thu, 2013-01-17 16:38

John A. Sparks, Obamacare tax on medical devices hurts jobs and health, The Washington Times

The point of this article is saying that the Obamacare tax that has been put on medical devices to help pay for more people being added to the health care system is actually going to worsen the health care system, rather than benefit it. The companies that make these health care devices will have to cut down production and much needed jobs to pay for the taxes, thus causing the health care devices to become more expensive and possibly end all production of the medical devices.

Obamacare Continues

Submitted by celizabetht on Fri, 2012-11-09 12:25

With the reelection of President Obama, Obamacare is allowed to progress and continue on. Thanks to this, Medicare will become more accessible, and people with preexisting conditions will be able to get the proper care that they need without being drowned in medical expenses. Private health care companies will now be regulated so that the prices they try to charge don’t become absolutely outrageous.

Health Care Options

Submitted by celizabetht on Wed, 2012-10-24 21:06

Health care is one of the central issues in the current 2012 election. Some argue that healthcare is a basic human right while others believe it should come to those who can afford the proper care. In 2011, it was said that 17% of US citizens didn’t not have any health care coverage at all. The reason for this was, “the cost of coverage is a financial hardship.” This is a problem that should be addressed, the problem lies in if health care is a basic human right of privilege.

Politics for Tomorrow

Submitted by celizabetht on Sat, 2012-10-13 15:56

I am very involved in the presidential discussions. There are several issues that directly affect my life and will be impacted differently based on the outcome of the 2012 Presidential Election. The most important issue for me is health care. I believe in a system of making health care public like the Obamacare plan. I don’t think privatizing all health care will do anything for American people. Mitt Romney believes that if we privatize health care, competition will arise and it will bring prices down. I don’t believe this.

Contraceptives have been the hot-topic in politics this past year, and with the newest piece of legislation waiting to to passed, women all across America may not be able to recieve insurance coverage for contraceptives.

Republicans argue that allowing employers to deny coverage for birth conrol is a constitutional and religious freedom right.

A Big Role

Submitted by kmcminimee on Wed, 2008-10-01 15:07


   The upcoming election is a very important one. There are a lot of issues that need to be addressed, and need to be addressed soon. Two of the issues I think are most important at this time are health care and the environment.

Health care is a big issue facing the next president. For me, it's an issue that I think needs to be addressed as soon as possible. Obama and McCain seem to have a similar stance on the problem, both agree that health care should be available to everyone, but neither is suggesting a free national health care system.
