To: Still Thinking
But the premise that someone has "a right to healthcare" means "a right to" seize values by force from those who produce them and give them to those who did not earn them. In such a slave society, people exist and produce values by permission, to the degree in which those in power find them useful. Whether their values are seized directly, such as in socialism, or are nominally theirs but controlled by the state, such as in the fascist state our healthcare system is in, is irrelevant.
Unfortunately, we are already here. If not in practice, it is in mindset by a near majority of citizens in one degree or another.

(The GOP faithful want me to believe I have only two voting options......"bad" and "worse")
That is exactly why it is so important to force every citizen to pay at least some federal income tax. Half the population thinks the federal coffers grow on trees, since they pay no income tax.
