The Cause of Socialized Medicine on Americans
Socialized medicine has been an idea here in the United States since the movement of Obama Care. This begin when the idea that all citizens should have the ability to be seen at any health care facility. Many Americans may even find this idea to be a benefit. Socialized medicine is when the government takes over all health care facility, hires doctors, and pays for care and medicine that is given. Many countries have converted to this style of practice, such as Britain, Spain and Finland. This kind of health care can be beneficial, but it also can do more harm than good. The cause of socialized medicine would be a negative effect on Americans because it would causes taxes to increase, low standards

The VA is controlled by the government to treat veterans. The VA has had their fair share of problems in the past years. Veterans wait months before they are seen by a doctor, files have been lost, and malpractice has been reported. This will continue if socialized medicine is practice in the United States. The whole point of socialized medicine is to allow everyone the care they need. Veterans have died waiting to be seen by a doctor this will not change if socialized medicine is practiced. More people will be without care than there are now. If the government takes over this will also result to lower standard as the VA has experienced. The United States is known to have the best medical care. How would the government even know the standards of medicine? Most office members are lawyers not doctors, they would have to hire a doctor or doctors to lead the standards, which would than cost us more money than we are already paying just to be seen. If the government owns all health care faculty how would people sue for malpractice since you cannot sue the government? This will than leave bad doctors in hospitals which could end up killing a patient who should have …show more content…
This idea is to allow everyone the care they need, but how will this be done when tax payers have to wait months to be seen, and medicines to be declined. The life span of Americans will decrease and more people will died due to no health care. Socialized medicine has only been around for a while meaning there is not enough research to determine if this practice will benefit the people. A patients care should never be taken for granted these people are in need to become well again. If we practices socialized medicine more patients could end up dead due to doctor, and supplies

    Also, when the death comes, the family will not have to use every last penny of their life savings to pay it off.

    If anyone knows how precious life is, it is someone who knows their life is soon to end. Terminally ill people live everyday to the fullest and even in the face of death they go on to enjoy what time they have left. Choosing to Die with Dignity is not “an easy way out.” It is an educated and selfless way to go peacefully. Another common con is “doctors are given too much power.” Doctors are here to help you, not to hurt you. If anyone knows what to come in a terminally ill patient’s life (medically speaking), it is a doctor.…

    This means that before Obamacare, the elderly would be denied access to health insurance because of chronic illnesses or restrictive policies set forth by the provider. This also set president for preexisting conditions. If someone were to have, for example, diabetes and they tried to change insurance carriers, it would be very difficult because they could claim this to be a preexisting condition and would not legally have to cover this person, but this changed with Obamacare. The youth of America also benefit because they are allowed to remain on their parent or guardians health care plan until the age of twenty-six. This benefits approximately three million youths.…

    The Immortal Life of Henriette Lacks is good in the way of bringing the human aspect back to the cells that more than 50 years later are referred to as Hela cells and are a cash cow for the medical industry today. I do not like how it seems too fluffy with extra about the family. It seems that she was creating a sympathetic side to the family to bring in the extra cash for her. I support the idea and there should have been less of the family. Skloot is a medical journalist first and that is what the book should have included more of and less of the family after the death of Henrietta Lacks.…

    This is not that case-- Medicine is used for healing in only some cases. Many times there is deadly side effects to almost all medicine in general, and with that, it isn’t healing that much in that case. Medicine which can’t heal anyone anymore shouldn’t be wasted, but if we let them choose how they want to end their own lives then it’s up to them but it’ll save them money and save resources for patients who need them who can be treated and healed. Medicine is just another excuse for an argument against Physician-assisted suicide, and use doctors feelings with patients as another excuse such as insurance providers and financial healthcare that will do abnormal enticement. This…

    35.7 million Americans are still uninsured therefore, any health care services that they may require will have to be paid for out-of- pocket and the cost is unbearable to most especially with the rising cost of healthcare (CDC 2015). Although the Affordable Care Act system and other government funded insurances in the U.S are ensuring that people with health insurance are receiving adequate healthcare it doesn’t cover everything or everyone. The high cost of health care in U.S leads most people to avoid going to the doctor and even those who are insured still have to make monthly premium payments that don’t cover the entire cost of health care service they receive. There are also co-pays and deductibles depending on the type of coverage one has as well as the kind of medical services they are receiving (HealthCare.gov 2015). According to the President’s Commission, private market insurance and some local government funded health care does not secure equal healthcare to all therefore, the article states that the federal government needs to delegate the healthcare system that ensures everyone receives equal quality of healthcare (179).…
