Is Health Care a Human Right?

This week's Do Now asks students if they think that health care is a basic human right and if all people should, regardless of wealth, have access to quality health care.  This issue is back in the news since open enrollment in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) marketplace, popularly known as Obamacare, begins October 1, meaning that people will soon be able to sign up for government-subsidized health insurance programs. The House GOP has also launched a shutdown battle by voting to defund Obamacare.

Here's the link to the Do Now:
