In this post i will be talking about the price of the NHS.
A few of you probably know what taxes are and what we pay them for.In case you don't know what a tax is -a tax is a financial charge imposed upon a taxpayer by a govermental organization in order to fund a various public expenditures.Basically it's a price of money adults usually need to pay.In order for America to get their healthcare, they need to pay a tax monthly for their healthcare.If an American broke a bone, they would need to pay for it and get bills a little while later.In the UK, you would get this for free.
Even though this happens, we still need to pay bills about healthcare, but for a different reason.If you go to work or have a high income you will need to pay taxes to fund the NHS.This money goes to the treatment of people with low income or people who do not work.But is this fair?
Some people believe that this is unfair, isnt it like paying for somone elses treatment?If you are working and have a high income you are basically paying for someone who just doesnt want to work.Yes, but this isnt the case.If you fund the NHS not only are you helping mothers,children,parents,the poor and other people who need some support but you are paying for youre medicine.Some people think that we would be better off jjst laying for our own healthcare.I disagree to that because if you have all the money you want, you can just get sick and not care.But someone out there cannot pay to help their child.
So what do you think?Should we carry on with this system?Or is this just unfair?
