Transcript: According to a 2012 study from Consumer Reports, paying for health care is the top financial problem for US households. With thousands of citizens struggling to insure themselves they also have the struggles of paying for housing, utilities, vehicles, and even food. By Gianna Somarriba Work Cited: According to a 2009 study from Harvard researchers, "lack of health insurance is associated with as many as 44,789 deaths per year," which translates into a 40% increased risk of death among the uninsured. The documents that the US was founded on provide support for free healthcare ... Health care should be free and public for any citizen of the United States for several reasons. To start, free health care should, in fact, be considered a natural right. If the American Nation was built on the concept of the right to life, then the fact that the right to save ones own life is denied because of the cost of insurance means that thousands of Americans are wronged every year. Next, America cannot run without its citizens yet thousands are dying each year because they are not covered. If the American people were guaranteed insurance, the amount of lives saved would outweigh the costs for funerals and the pain suffered every year by innocent people. Finally, people who are sick and in need of care should not have to become destitute in order to save their own lives. Health insurance is not the only bill tacked on to the priorities of the everyday American citizen; cost of food, clothing, and necessities each take a toll and a person should not have to become bankrupt just because their health may become a problem. In essence, it is clear that health care should be free and public to all because it is treated like a luxury when it is actually a necessity and in that aspect it is a tragedy by causing the most innocent people their own lives. Free healthcare is making citizens too dependent and it will bankrupt the United States... Should it be free and public? With free healthcare as a right for everyone, thousands of lives could be saved... "Call any insurance company and ask them any question about the new healthcare law and they don’t understand. Even one better, they point you to a website."-New Jersey male (strong Republican) Free healthcare would make current healthcare more expensive... The Declaration of Independence states that all men have "unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness," which necessarily entails having the health care needed to preserve life and pursue happiness.

It’s going to cost everybody a lot more money, everyone who works for a living." -Texas female (strong Republican) People who struggle financially would not have to struggle to care for their own lives... "I sell health insurance and I deal with these people every day and they are really upset. Some of them are going to lose their coverage, some of their premiums have gone up from 25 percent to 35 percent and some of them are not sure they will be covered as well as they have been." -Illinois male (leans Republican) It is too complicated to understand...

Transcript: HIGHER ED Methodologies Discussion Findings * Free public higher education has been a controversial topic amongst state and national government in regards to the progressions or regressions that it may produce. * However, the very thought of bringing it to the table may be something worth considering at the table. * This research seeks to examine discourse around the topics on free public higher education (FPHE) and what the advantages would look like in modern day society. *There will be discourse around FPHE as a social innovation and how the very idea of social innovation can set the agenda for education reform in the United States. Progress University of Baltimore - "Finish4Free" Tennessee - Push for Free Two Year Colleges Oregon - Free Higher Ed paid through wages * Examinations of literature (newspaper and journal articles, press releases, social media, petitions, and books) focused around the topic of achieving a FPHE was conducted (February-April of 2014). * Literature on this topic was very one sided and I was not successful in my pursuit to find literature focused around anti-FPHE, therefore, highlighted the discourse on challenges to a FPHE within the literature reviews examined. * I engaged in email to a San Francisco State University Professor who is a member of the California Teachers Association (CTA) currently working on a campaign to create FPHE across the nation. * In the 1970’s, the Federal Pell Grant covered 80% of college costs. For the 2013-2014 academic years, the Federal Pell Grant only covered 31% of college costs. What has changed over this time span? In a time where highly educated citizenry is needed, what progress are we making towards achieving that? * “If we took the state and federal money already being spent on providing higher education and the state and federal money that is lost each year due to higher education tax credits, deductions, and shelters, we could make public higher education free for millions of Americans.” – Bob Samuels * Redirecting tax subsidies seems like a possible solution to evading high student debt payments. However, new approached on how student debt can be subsidized may be near. In a recent article by the Roosevelt Institute, “how we subsidize student debt in a similar way to mortgage debt, that is, through allowing people to deduce the interest paid on this debt from taxes,” may be a fixer (Konczal, 2011). * Student debt is higher than ever with ranging numbers from $28,000-$33,000 being the average debt for college graduates and is increasing each year. * Student debt negatively impacts financial flexibility, buying power, and economic freedom. *Reducing or eliminating student debt would allow recent alumni to invest in their future such as purchasing homes, etc. *High student debt could be used to build wealth to evade poverty. *Policies progressing towards a Free Public Higher Education or more affordable higher education will address the national student debt crisis for future college students and the current economy. Conclusion * For-profit institutions such as the Apollo Group, University of Phoenix, EDMC, and Corinthians College contribute to the national student debt. 94% of the bachelor recipients in these for-profit institutions borrow to finance their higher education, with 23% defaulting on their loans. These for-profit institutions account for nearly one half of all student loan defaults. * “the public will give up on the idea of educating people for democratic citizenship, Instead, all of public higher education will be essentially vocational in nature, oriented entirely around the market logic of job preparation (Glenn, 2010).” * The United States is one of the 10 member organizations that has signed the United Nations’ International Covenant on Economic, Social, and Cultural Rights but has not ratified it. Is education making inequality worse? - For-profit institutions should be tasking their administrators to lead the way in social innovation/ entrepreneurship to combat high student debt and defaults. Governments should take into account that privatization of education will only enhance plutocracy and polarization that will cause for public and not-for-profit universities to dwindle. -As it stands now, cuts are constantly being made to higher education due to increasing costs of Medicaid, K-12 education (which isn’t bad, but they are suffering too), and prisons. -If the United States is seeking to push towards a free higher education system, they should ratify the United Nations’ International Covenant on Economic, Social, and Cultural Rights as a progressive step forward.

However, with a game like Who Wants to be a Millionaire, the players only have a choice between answers, A, B, C, or D. Therefore, when the player decides their answer, the person running the game clicks it, and the game will tell them whether they are right or wrong.
