Assignment 2: The Government’s Involvement In the Private Sector
Currently, numerous Americans lack health insurance because they are unable to pay for it. However, the number of people who do not have health insurance is relatively small as compared to the overall population. USA Today reported as of September 2010, 50.7 million Americans were uninsured. In the under 18 years of age category, 16.7 % were uninsured.
Answer and discuss the following questions. Provide analysis and justifications to support your conclusions.
What role, if any, should the U.S. Government play in health care coverage for Americans? Should the government’s role in terms of health insurance be different for those with jobs and for those without jobs?
