I would say that something like driving is a privilege and not a right, but when it comes to your health, I completely disagree. Everyone should have some form of health car available. Now, that doesn't mean I'm ok with freeloaders or the way they are going about this plan. Since you believe it is a privilege, what would you do in these hypothetical situations:
1. You currently have health care, but develop a condition that your provider decides they do not want to cover due to the cost, so they drop you.
2. You lose your job and are searching for work. You are now no longer covered and options like COBRA are too expensive as you are not receiving an income. While being without coverage during you job search, you become severely injured or sick.
In either of these hypothetical situations, should you just be left to die because health care is not a right? Note that I am not trying to pick a fight, but am curious on your thoughts.
