In this chapter, Elaine Hsieh and Eric Kramer focus on the healthcare system, specifically highlighting the nature of debates about universal care. Of importance to the authors is not the arguments launched themselves but rather how polemics are being used to rationalize particular visions of healthcare. How communities are presented and imagined in relation to their work status, for example, is a central way in which arguments related to universal healthcare are forged and barriers erected. Hsieh and Kramer contend that a deeper examination of the philosophy behind current work-eligibility arguments to healthcare can promote dialogue on this hotly debated issue.
