Many of the opponents of Obamacare completely overlook how beneficial it is for women. Pre-existing conditions like C-sections, insurance plans with maternity services and the equality of insurance costs for men and women are all included in Obamacare. However, before Obamacare was executed, women’s costs for health insurance could be 1.5 times that of men, according to Wharton. Obamacare prohibited this immoral discrimination in 2014. If Obamacare were to be revoked, women would suffer much higher rates of insurance due to this unethical presumption that they are more “expensive”.
Therefore, if a person was diagnosed with the disease, they were not be able to receive medication. The only way for them to receive the drug was to order it from overseas, which made the drug more expensive. However, now with the disease being increasingly found in developing countries too, there are local drug companies that have started licensing and manufacturing the same medication. Crohn’s disease has taken the lives of people, and infected many. It requires treatment to prevent even more deaths.
Gelles proposes the question of what would happen if potential business owners are scared of starting a business because of factors unrelated to business (Gelles). He then answers the question by saying that “the economy as a whole must be hurt”(Gelles). Gelles uses logic to further along the argument that universal health care would benefit the economy by saying that without universal health care the economy would be hurt because entrepreneurs would be “scared off” by the lack of a healthcare plan (Gelles). Gelles presents the same argument again, but with an emotional basis, he presents this argument by giving an anecdote about
In fact, someone can live off of the interest they make from the money they invested. For example, if Bill invests $1,000,000 and is promised to receive ten percent of that money back by the end of the year, Bill can make $100,000 doing nothing. This is a lot more than what average Americans make in a few years. Most of the time when someone dies, they leave their fortune to their children. Now that child can continue to live off the stock earnings and not have to work.
The cost of medical service rise continuously even with managed care it’s still too expensive for individuals to purchase medications, and other medical services. I feel this system is a great way to start and keeping up with monitoring health cost. Making sure people visit the primary care provider first is a great notion, as we learned in previous discussions reason for high healthcare cost is the lack of using primary care location over the ER. Exactly I agree with this statement, “There are plans out there through managed care that provide value-for-money and good customer service but there are also some that don’t offer customers equal value for money”. Nice post Christy, keep up the good work.
The TPP allows large pharmaceutical firms to set their medicine prices sovereignly and restricts the availability of low-cost generic drugs in the countries. Therefore, patients are forced to buy the expensive medications provided by those pharmaceutical firms. This will be a crucial problem, especially in developing nations, whose people would not be able to buy these expensive drugs. This can be considered inhumane as it disables people from getting a proper medication when they are sick. With this regulation, sick people would only get sicker because they can’t afford the medications.
Why the prison system is flawed The american prison system is flawed and should be changed because it is very expensive to keep it running the way it is, the prison system is helping gangs grow and it can be fixed it is possible. I believe that it needs to change so that cities will have more tax money to fix other things and the people who don't deserve to get released won't be. The prison system is very expensive for taxpayers because they have to pay to employ the officers, they have to pay for the building, the tools, the food for them to eat, there clothing and bedding. As stated here “The more money a state spends on building and running prisons, the less there is for everything else, from roads and bridges to health care and public
Even though they say that it would not work as effectively as for children it is still nice to know that not only disabled children are being concerned about but adults as well. One of the negative things the article points out is the fact that Lycra body suits tend to be very expensive which means that many people living or caring for people with disabilities may not be able to afford this treatment. When I conduct my experiment I would like to make my Lycra suit less expensive so all kids or adults can have chance to improve their
Without regulation, mass amounts of people can migrate to other countries to join different societies, causing a shortage in resources, space, and neglect. Although people would be moving to improve their quality of life, too many people migrating to one area can actually take away this positive quality, creating a more difficult life consequently. If a utilitarian belief was applied to this moral decision, the outcome would be contradicting as well. Allowing illegal immigrants to work in our society benefits the economy and the country as a whole. Without migration regulation, however, many people would suffer from the lack of resources and scarce opportunities within our country.
For conservatives healthcare is something they don’t want the government to be spending a lot of money on; as they believe it causes taxpayers to be paying more as well, primarily the upper class. They believe it to be detrimental to the economy, and to be “the biggest job killer in this country”, specifically Obamacare. As Obamacare is something
In 2014, insurance companies cannot refuse to sell coverage or renew policies to anyone based on a pre-existing condition. In the past, insurance companies could search for an error, or other technical mistake, on a customer’s application and use this error to deny payment for services when he or she got sick. The new law makes this illegal. The elimination of lifetime caps and the phased-in restriction of annual limits is a victory for many families across the country. Also thanks to Obamacare, all preventive healthcare examination such as mammograms, have all been made free.
