Yet, the most dominant force in the world, is also the only westernized industrial nation without a Universal Healthcare system. Clearly, something has to be done, America should have universal healthcare for all citizens. There are too many people in the country that is falling victim to the expensive private insurance companies.
Even though free healthcare is negatively associated with U.S. debt, deficit, and higher tax pay, all Americans should have the absolute right to free healthcare because it can save lives.

America is known for democracy, freedom, and the American Dream. American citizens have the right to free speech, free press, the right to bear arms, and the right to religious freedom to name a few.

According to Squires and Chloe, the United States of America is considered as the greatest country in the world, with the largest economy, military powers, freedom of religion and speech, and one of the most successful democrats (2). However, the United States in the only western modernized nation that does not offer free healthcare services to all its citizens.
