The Picture of Health in the US


Picture of American Health

Healthcare in the United States is an ever growing industry. Millions of people are employed in the field and even more are expected to join it as the American population ages. For people across the country, health is a very personal matter, while the upcoming November elections make the matter highly political.

However, what worries most people is the rising cost of health care. Costs have risen at a much greater speed than have the costs of almost any other facet of society. To demonstrate this disparity, it is said that gasoline in the United States would now cost $13.50 per gallon if its cost had risen at the same speed as healthcare costs have.

There are as many opinions about healthcare as there are people in the United States. Americans must own the healthcare system as their own and fight to right the wrongs within it. With proper care and dedication, the system can once again work for Americans.
