In the article "Hospitalized doctor stabs Sky Ridge nurse" by Joey Bunch explains a patient who called in a nurse for medical reasons and stabbed her. Witnesses saw the man walking out with a knife into his hands toward the exit door. This is important to the world because doctors and nurses need to be better protected and accompanied by another doctor or nurse. This is important to education because people could find a better solution for this issue. This is important to me because a man or woman could do that to my doctor while I was there and hurt other patients or people in the building.

For my action plan about the injustice of health care in the U.S, I have decided to do two things, make a video on Skype and Youtube with Mr. Fisch and write a letter to Congress. With the videos I'll explain to the world, but mainly America, about problems with health care and connect it with the economy of today's society. In my letter I will explain the necessities of a health reform for the U.S. This is important to the world because other countries need to know what not to do with health care. This is important to education because we can learn how to better the economy and health care issues. This is important to me because a lot of my family has lost their health care plan.

In the article "Health Care" by GovSpot Issues, they explain how government is overspending on health care. GovSpot says, "..with $1 of every $5 of national income going toward health care and spending expected to reach $4.2 trillion in 2016, or 20 percent of the GDP." implying that the U.S Government is digging our country into a bigger hole of debt instead of proposing a new system for health care. This is important to education because the future knows what not to do about health care. This is important to the world because the debt that we're in doesn't allow us to help, trade, or buy from other countries. This is important to me because Americans get taxed on health care and my family has to pay that tax.
