Some people say that government should give priority to health care whereas others say they should spend on other important priorities. Discuss both views and give your opinion.

Band 9.0 Sample :

People hold different views about how our tax money should be spent. While I agree that medical care is a field that requires huge investments, I believe that the government should also allocate the money for other priorities, such as education and transport.

On the one hand, a certain amount of tax money has to go to healthcare services. Today, a number of particular diseases are on the rise in terms of popularity, and it would be costly to supply vaccines, medicines, or treatments. For example, a large proportion of the population is now suffering from respiratory diseases or lung cancer due to exhaust fumes from vehicles and gas emissions from industrial factories. The remedies for those patients and the treatment facilities are often expensive, and the hospitals may find themselves in the struggle with financial problems without assistance from the tax system.

On the other hand, healthcare is not the only industry that needs money to be kept running. Take education as an example. The quality of the schooling system is proportional to the competence of the future workforce. Therefore, a country can benefit from such skillful human resources in the long-term if they invest the tax budget to build schools, provide lecturers with training courses, or hire native speakers to teach a foreign language. Moreover, the government should also spend money on solving transport problems. Traffic congestion is a global issue these days, and we can only handle the scenario if new highways are opened, and narrow public roads are expanded.

In conclusion, I believe that the government should use tax-payers’ money to improve not only the healthcare services, but also the education and transportation system.

That is a nice essay. But the question in the actual exam is slightly different. I am aware of it because this was the question in my IELTS exam and it went like this:

It is more important to spend money on the promotion of healthy lifestyle than spending it on treatment for already ill patients.

To what extent do you agree or disagree?
