I'm not a fan of a free lunch but, what is one to do with the free healthcare after one recieves it? If one gets a free education one can use it to better himself and his nation. It would be a lot more productive to helping people than say giving them free medicine, in the long run that is. Not the short run.

Seeing as how most jobs require a college education and those jobs have health benefits I'd choose the education.

There is nothing as a free lunch. Somebody ends up paying for it.

With free education, children who do not know how to read and write and cannot go to school due to the financial problems that their parents are going through will be able to go to school and learn how to read and write to become great leaders.

Also, if there is free education, the society can cure themselves without going to any doctor or herbalist for medicine to cure their sickness. Free education will help in our social world like events happening miles and miles away can be viewed on television live as well as listened to on the radio.

Finally, education is what makes a doctor a doctor, without education the doctor will not be there because they all go through education before they can become what they are have become now.

These and many other interesting facts indicate that free education is better than free health care.

Thank you.

I think free education is more useful because it will give an opportunity to develop a person, work and earn enough to provide himself and his family with all necessary and paid treatment in particular. The number of good specialists does not decrease, because any student without spending money on college can afford to order help from someone. For example, professional writers help me write my college essay on Paperial.com which gives me more free time for my hobby and work. That service can help with any writing works in your college/university, so qualify healthcare is more important.

Also, if there is a free education program, the community can cure themselves without going to any doctor or herbalist for medicine to cure their illness.

Free education will help in our social life as events that happen near miles and miles away can be watched on live television as we listen to the radio.

Based on the information given, I think that I would rather have free healthcare. With free healthcare, it will help everyone, medically speaking, while only a certain few have a 4.0 GPA, thus only helping the smartest population.

Well, considering how hard it is to be "made" from an education and how lazy people are becoming, free healthcare might actually do some good.

Basic lifesaving care is a recognized human right, to such a degree that we are bound under the codes of the Geneva conventions to provide it to prisoners of war. While our current situation of overpriced higher education is a massive problem, it's also not nearly as high a priority as getting a single payer health plan enacted.

Free healthcare, in my opinion. A free college education doesn't guarantee that people would choose to go to college, while on the other hand, a free healthcare would be much more useful for a larger number of people who can't afford it and people would definitely use it. As an idea, free healthcare seems much more effective. Of course, if one could implement both, it would be amazing.

Free Healthcare, of cause! Who even need colleges nowadays? Everything we want to know we can learn online. And it would be more productive and more resultative education that all those colleges. Whatever it would be. Data sciences, writing, languages. Things you don’t want to lean you may not to. You can buy it. For example, if you can’t write, you can use my assignment help to buy your essay. And you still be the winner. See? Free Healthcare it is. That is what we need the most.

Initially my first thought was “free college” because then people would be able to go to college and afford the healthcare. Yet, you stated a 4.0 GPA would be a requirement for the free college and that changed my view entirely. I am currently in college now and was able to maintain a 4.0 GPA for 3 years, but it has now dropped to 3.93 because I had a difficult course and wasn’t quite able to make that A grade.

If free college was based on a 4.0 GPA this would increase cheating because students will do whatever necessarily to get that A and it may not be studying. This would also put pressure on the professors. There are honestly some professors out there that make it very difficult for the student to get an “A”. They think a “C” is average and acceptable and means you passed the course.

This would also just increase the system of a student’s learning based on a grade system. In college, students should want to learn and absorb the information versus just doing what is necessary to get the grade. This may mean you take a little longer on the material and accept a B, but get more out of the course. This would decrease this learning environment if money was the sole factor.
