the current United States national expenditures on healthcare as a portion of GDP

  1. Discuss the current United States national expenditures on healthcare as a portion of GDP and how that spending impacts on other budgetary items in the United States Economy.
  2. Imagine that the United States passes a law that limits how much the United States government can spend on healthcare delivery.  As a portion of this cost control measure the federal government has modified how it supplies the states with  monies for healthcare.  The federal government will now supply the state of Florida with a fixed amount of funds (called a block grant) instead of a proportion of what the state pays for healthcare.  (Currently Florida receives federal monies for health care from the federal government based on how much the state spends.)

Because of this block grant the State of Florida now has to find some budgetary means to keep spending to within the block grants.

NOTE: This is an actual proposal supported by the majority of candidates running for the office of United States President.

  1. Your assignment for this discussion is to identify a Florida State level service or program that legislators could cut to keep within budgetary constraints.
  2. Discuss how this cut or elimination would impact on the overall state budget
  3. Discuss how the cut or elimination would impact Florida State residents
  4. Propose an alternative cost control measure.
