Health care and housing are not free. If the person obtaining either is not the person paying for it then someone else is. If that other person did not voluntarily pay for the doctor's visit or house, then the money used to pay for it was taken from him without his consent. In the English language we call that confiscating.
I have to aggree on these counts, 100%.
