for someone with a disability or a disease, that money would dry up quickly...
You may want to look into Carson's plan then. He wants to hand every man, woman and child $5000 of tax free money to use towards health care. That would constitute free money rather than care, wouldn't it?
having access is different from free money.
I'm pretty sure that taking care of people involves medical care. if the government doesn't ensure its people have access to medical care then it isn't taking care of them.
"Alex, this is where die hard conservatives lose a lot of credibility. Health care is not "spending other people's money" it is looking after citizens. If you don't understand how it works, do a little research into any other developed nation, but you cannot claim that health care is bankrupting the economy or the wealthy. "
look up Ben Carson health care plan. he is a doctor so he knows what patients and doctors want. why should the goverment spoonfeed everyone? As Dr. Carson says "The goverment got confused when reading the preamble, they thought "promote the general welfare ment putting everyone on welfare"
there are better ways to look after people without socialism.
I say no. I don't think free healthcare is a right but I do believe that if the (U.S.) government truly cared about us, as well as its own future, we would be granted free healthcare.

It should not take mortgaging your future to have a child, and unfortunately in the US it often does. Tens of thousands of dollars just for the delivery if there are complications. How do you justify that?
socialism such as free health care is great, until you run out of other people's money.
I also favor that system. I want some serious reforms on the American health system. It was a good start and idea (because everone should get care) but it needs more tweeks to fit into a good American model.
in the UK we have free healthcare (so to speak) apart from prescriptions. I say so to speak because we pay for it in our taxes....so technically it's not free....buts its better than paying for it. If you end up in hospital for a year, its not going to bankrupt you, buy equally you might not visit the hospital once in a year despite paying for it in taxes. Still I prefer this system.
