For the second and third premise, people who are unable to pay for life threating medical emergencies, can apply for Medicaid. This service is based on a patient’s income level. Not everyone will be approved, but it does effectively cover the high cost of a medical emergency (Emergency Medicaid). Hospitals cannot legal turn away patients with life-threating emergency. The fourth premises claims citizens who pay taxes do not want to pay for a person’s education. All federally funded programs are paid by the taxpayer. The government is under constant scrutiny because it’s high taxation. If every single person is allotted funds for free education, the government will raise the tax rate. Programs similar to Federal Student Aid, are funded by the federal government. All four counterarguments are true and the premises create an inductive argument. They are all valid and provide evidence. Premise three and four support premise one. Government funded programs will cost every taxpayer more money they cannot afford. The majority of U. S. citizens live pay check to pay check. If education and healthcare were free, it will broaden the gap between wealthy citizens and low-income citizens.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
