  • idk how an object or an idea of assurance is a right, but the right to life is a right.

  • When you start saying that you have a right to healthcare, you're saying you have a right to someone's services. It's not like people can't get good care under the system we had up till Medicare came to be. Prices were very cheap because there was so much competition in the healthcare market. Government has ruined the healthcare system.

  • you confuse healthcare and insurance. Countries with free healthcare are famous for having lower quality healthcare because they have no reason to do better because they get the same amount of money either way.

  • Health care is (provided) granted by the government - The government does NOT grant rights; they are inalienable. Government can not give you anything it does not steal from someone else.

Look it up. Prior to Medicare like in the 50's and 60's healthcare was cheap because there was a lot of competition and little government involvement.
