Jacoby nails this one.
My right to free speech or to own property does not give me a claim on anyone else’s time or labor or resources. But if I have a “right’’ to health care, someone else must be compelled to provide or pay for that care. Compulsion comes in different forms – higher taxes, insurance mandates, health-care rationing, intrusive regulations – but the bottom line is the same: a right to health care would leave society less free.
You have a right to stop shooting each other, to shooting up, to eating less crap, and to eating less. You do not have a right to make everyone in America pay for your foibles, nor to make some doctor fix what you could have avoided.
YOU DON’T HAVE A RIGHT TO HEALTH CARE!!
