Germany, Switzerland, Canada, and Taiwan all have universal health care access and the model has worked in those countries. There is not much else needed in this argument other than the foundational evidence that this system can work and keep the solvency mentioned in the previous two contentions.
Affirming that there have been numerous successful international precedents regarding universal health care, the fact that other countries provide successful universal health care alone is not enough for the United States to follow in their footsteps. This is because it is important to compare the frameworks of health care systems internationally to the United States' and divulge in the similarities and differences rather than only outline a simple fact of other countries providing universal health care. A famous English phrase that can be applied to this supplemental argument is " would you jump off a cliff if your friend did". Meaning, just becuase other countries have successfully provided universal health care (i.e., jumping off a cliff) does not mean the U.S. should do so as well. However, after comparison and evaluation, if the same act is suitable for the U.S., then it should proceed to do the same. That being said, S. Leonard Syme, former community health professor at the University of California at Berkeley, compares health care systems that guarantee universal health care to the U.S. system proving that the health care sytems of those other industrialized countries are more inexpensive and effective:
"The United States ranks at the bottom of all industrialized countries in overall mortality, life expectancy, and infant mortality. We rank below such countries as Spain, Austria, Italy, and the United Kingdom but above such countries as Poland, Slovakia, Hungary, and Turkey. And the medical care costs of high-ranking countries are a fraction of those in the United States. The United States contains about 5 percent of the world's population, but the amount of money spent on medical care is more than 50 percent of what the world spends. We in the United States spend more on medical care per capita than any country in the world, but our results are the poorest among industrialized nations of the world." (Health Affairs, March/April 2008, pp. 458-459).
This evidence provides proof that in comparison countries providing universal health care are superior to the U.S. in multiple areas regarding medical services and public health.
