Should people be able to choose to have health care or not?

  • Yes, the cost is too high for healthy people.

    It is utterly bizarre to require healthy people who take care of themselves and rarely need medical attention to pay hundreds of dollars every month for services they never use. Those who do not take care of themselves should have to pay more when they become ill. Let's all take a little more responsibility for taking care of ourselves, instead of spending our time telling other people what to do.

  • Yes people should be able to choose whether to have health care or no

    Yes, I think that it is a fundamental decision whether or not Americans should be able to choose whether or not they want health care. I think that under the Constitution that freedom to abstain or to opt into health care is guaranteed, and that the government cannot force us to buy things we don't want.

  • No. Hospitals would have to deny people without Healthcare.

    If a person chooses not to have healthcare and they do require medical assistance they may not be able to afford their procedure. In this case hospitals would have to deny the patient since they cannot pay. Without this law, patients who cannot afford would not even consider getting healthcare because they can get the procedure for free. And this is quite immoral. Therefore the only way to not face this dilemma is to make everyone have healthcare.

  • Health care should be compulsory

    When you have a heart attack, or faint or something people are going to call an ambulance quickly they are not going to have time to find out if that person is even covered or not, and wouldn't even know how to go about it. Everyone needs to contribute to the health care system in order to make it successful for everyone.

  • No, health care should not be a choice.

    If one views health care as a right to all citizens, and with the current capitalist system in place, the choice of not having health care impedes those who would not otherwise afford it. With the current system, those with the money to afford health care but do not need it are transferring their funding to those who can not afford it but do need it. If it is viewed as a right instead of a privilege, more people support mandated health care.
