HUM/115 – Critical Thinking in Everyday Life
Points of View
Please refer to the assigned readings for week three for this assignment. Make sure you complete all three steps before submitting for a grade.
Step One: In at least 75-100 words, provide your opinion on one of the following issues (or ask your instructor for approval of one of your own). What you write is to be your own words, but can be supported by quotes or paraphrases (maximum 20%):

Write Your Opinion Here Before Researching (in your own words)
I think that our health care system needs some changes that will benefit everyone, not just the corporations in the system. The pharmaceutical companies should have pricing regulations put in place so they aren’t able to charge thousands of dollars for one pill. Cancer patients or anyone in need of care for that matter shouldn’t have to worry about how they are going to pay for a treatment. My uncle has told me more than once if he wasn’t fortunate enough to have the money he does he wouldn’t be here today. His treatments are $13,000 every 4-6 weeks. I feel that everyone should have the ability to get the best medicine possible without big pharma charging thousands of dollars for one pill or shot. I know this wouldn’t fix our health care issues, but it would definitely be a huge change in right direction. This will save patients a lot of money and the pharmaceutical companies would still profit.
