Health Care As a Privilege: What the GOP Won
Buy your own health care, you knuckle dragging welfare case.
This is how people (Democrats and Republicans alike) think about everything. Outside of our various safety net programs, poor people are "denied access" to anything and everything they can't afford to pay for - including many of life's necessities (food, shelter, clothing, health care, etc...).
So let's look squarely at the argument the 'health care is a right' people are really making. You can't make this argument, and retain any kind of intelligent consistency, without also arguing that people have a "right" to everything they need.
Health care is a right. You can pay for any kind of health care you want. You have a right to eat, that doesn't mean someone has to take you to lunch. You have a right to housing, but that doesn't mean you get to demand that someone else move you into their property.
Liberals believe that they are denied something when the fact is, they aren't entitled to it free with no effort at all on their part. Liberals don't want to be human beings, what they really want is to be a household pet.
yes, if liberals were honest they would say, we have a right to your food and your healthcare.
That said, I'm sure if we switched to a capitalist health care system we would be the richest in heath care for the same reason we are the richest in everything else.

Health care and health insurance are two entirely different things.
