Health care is a right to all no matter age

Health care is a right to all no matter age, race, class status, or sexuality. People deserve access to health care as a means of a human right. Universal Health Care is a system that provides quality medical services to all citizens. The United States is considered to be one of the most successful countries in the world. It has the largest economy, the largest military, freedom of speech and religion. Yet there is one thing most people seem to forget? The United States of America, one of the most dominant forces in the world, is also the only westernized, developed nation without a Universal Health Care system. For many, accessible health care by means is a feud between life and death. Our current system is damaged. According to the Census Bureau there are approximately 47 million Americans without health insurance, or nearly 16% of the total population. (Nations Health). This means that a substantial amount of residents do not have access to any form of health care coverage for themselves or their family. The United States is currently ranked 26th in life expectancy, and this may be due to the fact that most U.S citizens cannot afford proper healthcare. Therefore, the United States should adopt universal health care because coverage should be viewed as a basic human necessity, providing all citizens the right to health care is helpful for economic productivity, and it could allow the government to focus on more beneficial funding.
