SS238M1 Civic Engagement and Public Policy2Health care is the public policy I am writing. I chose this public policy, not just because I'm focused on healthcare, but as a caregiver and a person with an elderly family, health care is important to me. I see healthcare as a constant uphill battle against the well-being of so many different enemies for the public.Unlike other developed countries, the United States spends twice as much on health care per person, on average, and the results are worse. A large part of the healthcare spending goes to the treatment of preventable diseases, so more money andeffort is being spent on preventive health care and wellness activities (Furlong, M.E.K.S. R. 2018). Healthcare for almost all of us should certainly be a matter, given that without return or assistance we pay so much in taxes. You must be below the poverty line if you apply. People above the poverty line suffer because they need help, but they do too much to get the help they need. First of all, there are many political factors surrounding health policy.
