Source Notes (1): Should the Government Provide Universal Health Care to All Americans?

Title: Should the Government Provide Universal Health Care to All Americans?

Summary: This website is all about the pros and cons of universal health care and the facts and statistics that go with it. I found this information to be very helpful, in a balanced, political manner.

Topic: Universal health care

Category: Journalistic

What is it?: A web site about the pros and cons of universal health care.

Title: Should the Government Provide Universal Health Care to All Americans?

Publication Information: balancedpolitics.org, December 18, 2008

Support:

Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, Department of Transportation, Social Security Administration, Department of Education, Department of Motor Vehicles; All of the administrations and companies  listed here were being compared and contrasted in the “cons” part of the website on why universal health care would be a negative thing to do for the economy.

Former president George W. Bush; Bush was mentioned in the “cons” part of this website as well, mentioning that even he was not about to fix this major problem we [America] are facing … skyrocketing, record-breaking debt levels  in these spending programs, such as education spending, unemployment insurance, social security, and now, universal health care.

Audience and Agenda: As I mentioned above, this website is all about balancing the pros and cons of political issues, such as health care, same-sex marriage, death penalty, social security, immigration, minimum wage, and so much more. I think this website is good for people who are moderate in the political world, such as myself. It’s not bias on one side or the other and gives out some reliable information.

Usefulness: It’s no lie that health care prices are sky-high and it seems to be getting worse with the growing economy losing jobs. This website lists the facts and discusses what could come out of universal health care to all Americans. I found this website very useful and will definitely be using some of the information from it for my final project.
