Medicare should be free. Seniors that have spent years paying taxes and people that have worked but can no longer do so should have health care without having to worry about being able to afford it. Everyone should have access to health care, and people that have spent years paying taxes should have free health care.
Yes, Medicaid should be free as should any form of health care. The United States Declaration of Independence lists three inalienable rights; life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. For a right to be inalienable, it means that those rights cannot be taken away. The right to live hinges upon health, and even more so, the right to the pursuit of happiness hinges upon good health. Thus, Medicaid and other forms of health care should be free.
