Health Care is a right. Furthermore, this very concept is baked into the conceptual make up that is government. The governments central obligation is to protect and care for its citizenry. The cost of living all throughout the US is high comparatively high to wages earned. People young and old; single and with children should not have to make the hard decision, food or hospital. However, government programs, on their own tend to not deliver the best service. Therefore, this health care system should have to compete in the market just like the others. Competition breeds excellence and the cream rises to the top.
