Limiting public medical care for smokers: Should smokers receive limited or no public medical care?

  • Smokers make the informed choice to harm themselves, tax dollars should not spent to make up for that.

    In the 21st century there is no reason why anybody should be a smoker. Youth are educated on the danger, there are countless programs to help aged smokers quit, and our society is moving into a cleaner era. If smokers are not willing to quit smoking while they are receiving smoking related healthcare they should be cut off.

  • Smokers Don't Get Transplants, So Why Get Health Care?

    Just like welfare recipients on drugs shouldn't get benefits, smokers shouldn't get public health care assistance until they stop smoking. The only assistance these people need is addiction counseling. Smoking causes a number of health problems like lung cancer, COPD and heart disease. Smokers should receive limited public medical care to stop smoking, then they can get a full-blown benefit of primary care physicians and the like.

  • Smokers should receive a limited type of public medical care

    Smokers should receive a limited type of public medical care. This is because there is an overwhelming amount of evidence that supports the fact that smoking causes lung cancer, emphysema, and further medical issues that cost a fortune to treat. Smoking is not needed to survive, and the government should not use tax money to support those who choose to do this in spite of the fact that smoking can and will kill you.

  • Smoking-Public or Private Burden?

    Smoking has been long a part of American culture. In the 1950s this habit was even billed as beneficial. Now that we have done more research on the subject of smoking and have determined how detrimental it is to not only the person smoking but the people around them it is important that we place societal restrictions on those who continue to smoke. This is to promote health. Smokers should not be denied public healthcare but the limitation of it should be enough of an incentive to stop smoking all together.

  • Smokers should still have access to health care

    Smokers should not have limited public health care. They and their families need access to care as much as, and maybe more in some cases than non-smokers. However, as their care is likely to cost more they should have to pay more for it, or provide some type of service to help defray the extra cost.

  • Smokers should not receive limited or no public medical care.

    Smokers should not receive limited or no public medical care. They should receive the same care that anyone else gets. It would not be fair that just because of someone who has a health condition cannot receive fair medical treatment in the world that we live in today. I think it is time to start treating people equally.

  • They should receive the same care as everyone else.

    Smoker should receive the same care as everyone else because there are many types of bad behaviors out there. If we ban smokers from health care who will be next? Will we start banning those who drink alcohol or eat at McDonald's? This is an area that could go bad really quick!

  • Everyone Deserves Healthcare

    Medical care should not be limited to any group because of health related decisions they have made in the past. People who were drug into the marketing of the cigarette companies need health care just like everyone else and will often need health care to start the process of quitting addictive items like cigarettes.
