Life, liberty and the . . . right to health care?
Chris Dodd has proclaimed that every American has the right to health care. He said so on tonights Countdown, while reminiscing about Ted Kennedy.
If health care is a right, what about food, shelter and clothing? Are they all legally enforceable rights? Where do these rights derive from? What country are we living in? Is it one that the Founders would recognize?
Here was Dodd, getting misty about Ted with guest host Lawrence ODonnell, and describing a right some of us didnt realize existed . . .

Chris Dodd declares every American has a “right” to health care. Ping to Today show list.
Dodd’s a Stalinist. Fact is I had a right to see to my own health care until today. Then it was taken away. Now the government is in charge of my health care.
Declaration of Total Dependance
A right can’t be regulated by the government.
They just don't have the right to make anybody else pay for it.
We all have a right to a waitress sandwich too.
We have a ‘right’ to everything but our money and our freedom.
Sorry Dodd, wrong again ass wipe, there is no “right” to health care in the Constitution.
You have no right to the fruit of another person’s labor.No third party can stop you from entering into a contract for medical services, but beyond that it should not be in the realm of government.
I have the right to move into his house.
And a sweetheart deal on a mortgage too.
Actually, a mortgage even if you have no income and no assets.
OK, well, I’d like to exercise my right to a cut of the graft he took while in office - like that sweetheart loan he got on property. It’s only fair, it was my government, and he stole it.
I doubt if the nanny-staters in Congress ever had to work hard to earn anything.
Reminds me of Pelosi inferring that ‘health care’ was covered by “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness”.
To be happy you have to be healthy so health care must be furnished.........
Hey Dodd: my rights are given by God, and are supposed to be protected by government. Government is not the bestower of rights. Read our founding documents again, that is if you ever have.
The government is NOT God!!!!
Health care is meaningless if you’re starving to death.
FREE FOOD FOR EVERYONE. IT’S A RIGHT.
Health care is meaningless if you’re living on the street.
FREE HOMES FOR EVERYONE. IT’S A RIGHT.
Health care is meaningless if you have no money.
FREE MONEY FOR EVERYONE. IT’S A RIGHT.
And what about mental health?
Health care is meaningless if you are so depressed you let yourself go.
FREE VACATIONS FOR EVERYONE. IT’S A RIGHT.
You can’t be too healthy without some sort of exercise.
FREE GYM MEMBERSHIP FOR EVERYONE. IT’S A RIGHT.
You can’t be too healthy if you can’t get to where you want when you want.
FREE TRANSPORTATION FOR EVERYONE. IT’S A RIGHT.
And this is the intellectual cesspool that is the Democratic Party. It’s the fundamental difference between the founding fathers and Karl Marx and the Democrats are closer to Karl Marx than the founding fathers. This is what the Republicans should pound the Democrats with. Draw out this distinction. Show just how corrupt and disgusting these parasites are.
"Every American has a Right To Eat!" So just go to the grocery store of your choice and take what ever you want. Don't Worry About Paying For It! Avoid the check-out lines. It's your Federal Government/Democrat Party given RIGHT! So go! And take Freely.
Utilizing that rationale then we should really push the 2nd Amendment. When will the Obama start forcing everyone to have a firearm?
Interesting that Dodd and his ‘rats voted to coerce us into paying ofr this “right.”
They always have had the access to healthcare. They have always had the right to buy it. They just didn’t want to pay for it....now some won’t have to.
They think having a flat screen computer, I Pod, blackberry, and 15 credit cards is more important than paying for healthcare!
The only thing that has now changed is that they now HAVE to buy it.
And Dodd’s paying! What a guy!
Hey dips**t Dodd,
No doubt, according to your frakin “rights” idiots, every American is also entitled to:
To not have to work but live off of social services and unemployment
A college degree
To free popcorn so that they can sit back and watch as you frakin idiots destroy and bankrupt this country
Did I miss anything here, IdiotDodd? Grrr....!
“Utilizing that rationale then we should really push the 2nd Amendment.”
No, that’s different. The right to keep and bear arms is actually written in the Bill of Rights. As such, it doesn’t really exist. Only the ones Barack Obama & Friends deem to discover are worthy of protection.
Life, liberty and the . . . right to pick other people’s pockets
It doesn’t say that in the Constitution.
We should have a right to use Wrangel’s beach house in the Dominican Republic, too.
Dodd clearly doesn’t know what a ‘right’ is. A right does not cost someone else’s his rights which the health care hijack does.
And I have a right to a waitress sandwich.
You want mayo with that? ;-)
Chris Dodd is a jackass. If he isn’t, way is he retiring? Kind of like stupak. Losers! Hehehehe!
Then why are we going to have to wait for our rights until 2018? 'Rights' are endowed by our Creator not the Stupak crew.
No right must be provided by the labors of another.
I HAVE A “RIGHT” to earn a living!
Almost 18 months after being laid off and over 200 job applications being ignored .. Someone “OWES” me a J-O-B .. doncha think?
Someone on Medicare needs to sue HHS for depriving them of their ‘rights’ for denying a non-covered service to force some judge to say healthcare is not a right.
What satan sez... no death panels you paranoids... "You shall not surely die."
How long before a new earthquake fault is discovered under Capitol Hill?
As I always point out, “health care” is not an ambient resource like air, or an intrinsic quality like the pursuit of happiness. “Health care” requires the active labor of others, so saying that health care is a right means that you believe you have a right to the active labor of others, regardless of your ability or even desire to pay for it.
This is what slaveowners believe.
No, thanks. But I will take some arugola and Dijon mustard with it. :>)
Geeze, dont give him any ideas, cranked.
Health care is neither a right or a privilege. It is a necessity. There is a big difference.
Thanks Chris. I was here earlier. I’m trying to decide what ‘I have a right to’ so I can request it.... . .
“Someone OWES me a J-O-B .. doncha think?”
No! You should not be forced to work. That is cruel and unusual punishment. You are entitled to all your needs, and a few wants. It’s right there, in the Constitution. Or somewhere.
