    Question: When did healthcare become a basic human right?

    When The socialist in this country said so.

    However, I think what the post was more referring too was the fact that some pay for others to the extream

    For instance this year my healthcare premiums will be 12K, And for that 12 K I get the gift of paying for all my medical expenses Including meds up to a 12 K deductible

    So that others who don't want to pay for anything and never had insurance before Obamacare can get low-cost insurance

    I don't come around much anymore but when did the insurance forums become a political forum. Hell, this sounds like USMB.

    To OP Medicare for All will never happen at least in mine and most on this board lifetime.

    And what about the kids of those who freeload? Should they be smeared with the same paintbrush as their parents? Should people with hereditary health problems which limit their earnings and can't afford healthcare also be turned away at emergency room doors? Should it just be a case of survival of the fittest? Even wild animals will group together to shelter their sick from attack. And what if your surgery was denied because somebody else paid $13k in premiums and space was limited? Where does it end?

    you have a right to appear to be able to protest, however, those at the top will still make the final call, and it will ultimately be decided by their own self-interests' even if, in the short term, it appears to be costing them money.

    Should someone who has always paid for insurance have to pay more then they can afford effectively getting shut out of insurance so that others that are not willing to work can have'?

    Honestly, if it were 2 years ago maybe even last year I just couldn't do it.
    I work hard and am just making it due to healthcare cost

    I see others who could care less don't care to work hard only has insurance because they don't pay much

    Also, emergency doors have always been opened


    I do agree there are issues many are with the cost of meds and medical, I mean if you see a hospital bill look the cost of aspirin I mean really, If these things got fixed I would bet things would get better

    And also it's not the $13 K in premium as much as it is after that there is 12 K out of Pocket Including meds Before Ins will pay anything

    It doesn't matter if I have ins and can't afford to go to the doctor

    And what are you talking about with kids being smeared with the same paintbrush as their parents

    At least here if enough people speak out something is usually done not aways but many times

    My whole point in bringing it up is that it IS NOT a right like many people are crying out about. However, should we, as a society, try to do something that helps all....sure. Just don't come at me with all this "We have the right to healthcare"!

    If the parents can't afford premiums, should their kids also suffer?

    I think its more about healthcare quality being determined by wallet size.
