The question is: Is health care a priviledge or a right? Most modern societies have said that it is a right, like education.

A majority of the folks living here resoundingly answered that it is a privilege, when they went to the polls. Now that we are being shown what is meant by the repeal of the ACA (Obamacare), many are changing their opinions. At the same time, we are learning that the private enterprise system does not guarantee effective and affordable health care.

Perhaps we are arriving at the place other modern societies arrived at some time ago. To provide effective and affordable health care, a single payer system is the way to go, just like Medicare has been for many of us.
