    Use of evidence: 4.9 4.8

    Comments: Great job! I wish you extended your contentions more clearly in the last speech, especially the econ advantage from the first constructive. I think this is a good easier to what I think your opponent's argument about how taxes would hurt poor people. However, I am impressed by your ability to impact turn taxes so I do not think this is an issue for you in this debate. I also think your human rights contention is an easy answer to her argument about whether healthcare should be provided as per the constitution. Overall, it was great! Great job! I would make sure that every argument you make has a claim, a warrant, and an impact. Think of this as what you're saying + why it's true + why it matters. That way, the judge has a tangible thing to vote on that could be a negative effect of universal healthcare. I like your argument that more taxes would hurt poor people, but I need a reason why that is true and why it matters (ex: economic inequality would increase, diseases would increase with more housing precariousness) to really be convinced to vote for it.

    The decision is for the Proposition: Teresa Nuckolls

    Reason for Decision:

    I vote affirmative because I think COVID-19 proves uniquely how it is important for everyone to have a right to access healthcare. I agree that a lack of access to preventative care leads to more serious health conditions, which would make diseases and deaths even worse. Great job everyone!
