Resolved: That the United States government should implement universal health care modeled after the French system.

Foreword: In the United States 47 million individuals do not have health care insurance. Those individuals receive lower standards of treatment and die prematurely as a result. In France, budget deficits render unsustainable the status quo model of health care. This debate will come down to the fact that the United States has a substantial problem of access and France has an imperfect solution. Will the French model of health care alleviate or exasperate the US’ current distress? Remember in your argumentation to draw direct comparisons between the two nations. It doesn’t matter if France’s health care sets the highest standards in the world if its model is not applicable to the United States. This topic is very policy oriented and will give you a good idea of the problems legislators face in addressing the health care needs of the populace every day.
