Health care is a right. Is someone preventing you from receiving or giving health care?
One issue I find changes the health care debate is the factor of
SPIRITUAL HEALING, in particular, methods of cure and recovery from
EITHER physical OR mental/spiritual DISEASES using FORGIVENESS therapy
in addition to psychological and medical treatment.
Since these therapies require FREE WILL and personal acceptance of responsibility,
this CANNOT BE LEGISLATED. Thus it becomes problematic to require public taxes
to pay for treatment and consequences of NOT pursuing or completing such
cost-effective therapies that greatly REDUCE if not ELIMINATE expensive procedures.
What if someone requires expensive cancer treatments for refusing treatment to stop smoking?
What if a local hospital has to expend resources treating gunshot victims if these people were deliberately involved in drugs and gang activities that led to the violent damages?
If people are going to democratize and localize health care, I foresee local "health and safety codes" where residents agree to certain standards of conduct in order to share resources under a cooperative program; and if abuses or excess costs are incurred, the residents AGREE to pay for any damages or debts they cause in order to live there.
If it cannot be legislated federally or statewide, then local civics associations per neighborhood subdivision may have to implement their own policies, as long as these are based on consensus among the residents who AGREE to live there by those rules. I can't imagine it can be forced by legislation, but would work if people VOLUNTARILY comply.
If you want affordable housing and health care, you have to agree NOT to engage in costly behaviors that impose greater burdens relying on "other people" to be financially responsible. Otherwise, you have the current system of prisons and prosecution wasting taxpayers' resources, instead of investing restitution and correction on the side of preventative care and sustainable services. I believe by holding people accountable for the costs of their actions, we could fund EFFECTIVE self-sustaining programs in health care, housing and education without imposing further taxes than already paid for failed systems.
Resources on spiritual healing (that is voluntary and free, working in natural harmony with other psychological or medical treatment, so there is no conflict between any of them.)

Human beings are born as such and as such human beings will need health care at some point if not very soon after birth.
Therefore by design health care is part of our existence not necessarily by choice in which case health care should be available 24/7 as our needs dictate. Without the white collar world demanding payment.
The medical insurance industry does not provide health care so why are they "allowed" to take our money? In essence this is sanctioned fraud.
For example, pharmaceuticals and other medical devices are the leading high technology exports of Europe and the United States. The United States dominates the biopharmaceutical field, accounting for three-quarters of the worlds biotechnology revenues.
Health care should always be there 24/7 and not as a retail item like a can of beans.
Ask the 50 million who have no medical insurance...
I can get a can of beans 24/7 from most major urban supermarkets, for about 2 clams, while gubmint-run medical services put me in a Soviet bread line.
Analogy fail, comraade.
Most of them:
1) Aren't big consumers of medical care.
2) Already qualify for Medicare/Medicaid and/or pay for their services out-of-pocket.
Next brain dead talking point?
