NO. Health care is not a right. It is a need and a want but it is not a right. Survival value does not determine rights. Let's define a right: rights neither obligate anyone else to act nor may they be infringed upon. So things like speech and life and private property. For me to have these things does not require anything of you other than not to impede on them. Health care is not like that. It requires someone else to act. It requires physicians and medical equipment that someone had to pay for. Calling health care a right means that those MUST serve you. So it's not a right. Moreover, laws are not opinion polls. They are decisions on when it is acceptable to send men with guns to force you to comply. So this isn't about "is healthcare a good thing" or "Should everyone be able to get the care they need." That's not a question government is able to answer. The only question this legislation could ever possibly answer is "Should you be forced, whether you are willing or not, to pay for someone else?" This legislation says yes. I say no. Not because it's a bad thing to help people but because it's a bad thing to force people. Your altruistic ends do not justify your authoritarian means.
