Be prepared to either defend or take the other side of each of the following propositions using analysis and facts from the readings in this chapter.
- A two-tier health care system – one that tolerates different standards of access and care according to wealth and social position – is morally unjustified because health care is a basic human right of fundamental importance.
- A system of socialized medicine like that in Canada is distinctly un-American and will lead to massive rationing of services.
- In order to have a coherent health care financing system, it is essential to sever the link between employment and insurance.
- The best feasible way to guarantee everyone access to a decent minimum level of health care is to fund a comprehensive network of public hospitals and outpatient clinics as a safety net for those without health insurance.
