Governments are sometimes responsible for the spending on the health service and education system while it is argued that individuals should bear the responsibility, I agree that the government should give priority to public well-being.

政府很多时候是需要对老百姓的医疗以及教育系统买单的,而有部分声音认为这笔账应该由个人承担。 我比较赞同政府优先考虑公共福利这一点观点

Supporters of public spending on essential services suggest that money makes it easy for these service providers to meet people’s basic needs. People who have access to free education are able to find well-paid jobs, so they can earn incomes and afford food. Also, they can receive medical treatment when they contract diseases. It is easy for people to lead a happy and rewarding life, and this is the reason why anti-social behavior is likely to decline. Otherwise, they tend to feel resentful, probably stage a violent protest.  

支持者认为将钱投入到对老百姓有重要作用的公共服务项目上会使得提供这些服务的人员更好的满足老百姓的需求。人们得到免费的教育自后就有机会找到好的工作,这样他们就有工资养活自己。另外,当他们遭受疾病的时候他们也能得到及时和免费治疗。 这会使得人们的生活幸福快乐,同时也可以解释为什么那种反社会的行为会逐渐减少。相反,他们会感到对政府的厌恶,甚至会有暴力的倾向。

On the other hand, opponents argue that people should bear medical expenses as well as tuition fees and that their contribution can promote social progress. Private sources can ease the budget pressure and make it possible for governments to divert resources to other services and sectors. For example, money can be invested in science research, which holds the key to innovation and technological advances

另一方面,反对者认为老百姓应该自己承担医疗和教育的费用,这样他们也能对社会的进步贡献自己的一点力量。非公立资源不仅可以减轻城府的压力也可以使得政府将有限资源投入到其他部门和服务项目中。举个例子,投资科学研究就是个不错的选择,因为这是决定革新和科技发展的关键所在。

In my opinion, it is important to make education and health care available for citizens at lower cost or no cost, and free education can reduce illiteracy. This means that the country is able to develop a well-educated and energized workforce. These individuals can adopt the latest technology and apply it to their work, which can give the country a competitive advantage

在我看来,让老百姓看的起病,上的了学甚至全部免费是非常重要的一件事情,而且免费教育会减少文盲的存在。这样做就意味着整个国家的劳动力都是有着良好教育基础和充满精力的人们。他们将学到的先进技术运用到他们的工作中,使得自己的国家变的非常有竞争力。

To summarize, I think the health service and education service should be supported by the government, although users should pay part of fees. 

其实我想说的是,医疗和教育系统还是需要政府的大力扶持,当然老百姓承担一小部分的费用也是说的过去的。
