Why Does America Not Want Free Healthcare?

Updated on December 24, 2017

It’s weird to think that many Americans love to use the word God to justify the greatness of this country. However, when our last President Barrack Obama wanted health care for everyone in the country, most Americans rejected the idea.

If the plan was done correctly, it would have been the most humane thing to do. See, most Americans think that this is the best country in the world, with many of them never having left the United States. I get it, loving your country is not a sin, as most people that live in a country should love the country they live in. The United States is a very good country to live in, and I love it. However, this elite country does not have health care for its people. It does, but it is not ideal at all. For the most part, the upper class and some of the middle class had health care, before Obamacare.

When Obamacare kicked in, most Americans had health care. I did! Before that, because I didn’t have a full time job that provided healthcare, I was screwed. Now, being a freelance writer, I have health care with Obamacare, and it is pretty damn good. It equals out to the same healthcare I had when I used to be an educator a long while back—being one of the blessed middle class that had health care.

So, what I am trying to say is this: Why didn’t America by into having health care for everyone? It is the Christian thing to do right? What I mean is that it is the humane thing to do! I said Christian because most Americans are believers of Christ. C'mon, you know this is true! Also, America is always trying to feed its people that the United States is this country that is always striving for equality for everyone and that is also trying to establish greatness under the name of God! Well, health care for everyone is a godly thing, no?

I think that it would be better to spend our tax money into providing health care for our fellow Americans no matter what the cost. See, America should look into spending its money into health care instead of trying to govern the world and controlling oil. In the end, the cost of providing health care for Americans would most likely be a lot cheaper than trying to change the world into a capitalistic world and controlling oil.

The other thing is that America is built on greed and many strive to be rich! Not a bad thing to strive to be rich! However, many Americans believe that providing free health care is giving to the poor and the lazy, which is a bad thing because lazy people do not deserve charity. Guess what? Not all poor people are lazy, they just live in a country that runs on Capitalism, and Capitalism has many losers. So, those poor people paid their taxes while playing the game, and, therefore, deserve everything that is coming to them—food stamps, unemployment, and even free health care.

Is free healthcare socialism?

That is the big scare here in America—Socialism. Yeah, it sucks, But free healthcare would not make this nation into a Socialist country. Most Americans are scared that the government will take control of everything! Guess what? Our government is already in control of everything!

The other argument is that socialist countries that provide free healthcare for its people have poor programs. In other words, the health care sucks because it lacks funds and knowledge. Well, this is America! If the United States lived up to its name, the country would be able to run a pretty damn good national health care program for its people. Have a little faith!

But no, it chooses to be an expert at warfare and building weapons of mass destruction. For that, one can count that this country is badass! Of course, all this is done under the name of God. God bless America!


In the end

I think God would bless America better if it was trying to succeed as a nation with everyone involved. Not just a few that own corporations and build evil empires. For me, living in a country that claims that it is “one nation under God”, have a hard time believing that it does not strive to provide free health care for everyone.

Can you imagine living in one of the best countries in the world and you die in the ER because you didn’t have insurance! Oh yeah, that has happened here in the US, one nation under God, for the longest time!
