|We propose the establishment of a publicly funded national healthcare system which will exist along side a privately operated system to ensure that all Aldegarians have access to first-class medical treatment. We further propose that essential medications receive some level of government subsidisation to ensure a healthy, productive populace.|
Old value:: Health care is private, but is paid for by the state for people with low incomes.
Current: There is a free public health care system and a small number of private clinics, which are heavily regulated to ensure they treat their patients well and provide good care.
Proposed: There is a public health care system, but private clinics are allowed.
Old value:: The government does not subsidise the cost of pharmaceutical drugs at all.
Current: The government pays partially for all citizens' pharmaceutical drugs, and pays entirely for those of low income citizens.
Proposed: The government pays partially for all citizens' pharmaceutical drugs, and pays entirely for those of low income citizens.

|Message||No, a public system in addition to the private sector does not necessarily mean good service. In fact, it sometimes means bad service and a big waste of taxpayer money. As for article 2, perhaps some reform of that is necesary, but the current proposal goes too far. We're sure that pharmaceutical drugs are at low prices through the laws of the free market.|
