This thesis is an assessment of the sustainability of the current cost of government and health care in the United States. The assessment includes a comparison of America’s current financial condition to that of the (bankrupt) City of Detroit, reviews four models that outline the consequences of attempting to sustain the current trends, and compares the American healthcare system to fifteen healthcare systems from the top developed countries in world. The resulting predictions regarding America’s ability to sustain the current implementation of government and health care in a fiscally-responsible manner are conclusive, but far from optimistic.
