i. The objective of this project is to inform as many people as possible about this issue.

We may
not be able to change everyone’s mind, but we need to at least try to tell people what is
happening so maybe something will be done.
ii. The whole country should work together on this. We need to inform people on how the
healthcare system could be much better than it is right now. On a smaller scale, people should try
to inform their communities. They should want to help so that everyone in this country is treated
more fairly.
iii. Most scholars would agree that nothing can be done about this issue. They believe that the
country’s opinions are polar opposites of each other, and nothing can ever be done because of
this. There is no middle ground here when it comes to these issues. In the articles I have read
about everyone who tried to fix the healthcare system, none of them were entirely successful.
Maybe the citizens need to know more about the options so they can make more informed
decisions. I believe education is vital in solving this issue. Many people are probably unaware of
just how many people are without healthcare. They also don’t know of the many other systems
around the world that are more fair for everyone, not just those who are lucky. We must let
everyone know there are other possibilities out there. Change is important to creating a better and
brighter future.
