Healthcare IS ALREADY a right. Let me explain.
Gun ownership is a second amendment constitutional right. We all have the right to bear arms and protect ourselves. Should we choose to, and I myself do, can spend hard earned money in a gun dealer and purchase a gun to use as protection or for sport, for ourselves and to protect our families. I myself also have a concealed carry permit to allow me to carry and protect myself. I have the right to do so.
We all also have the right to life, liberty and happiness. Should we choose to, we can spend our hard earned money with an insurance agency and purchase the level of protection to protect ourselves and families.
This has gotten confused, as some people cannot afford or do not buy health care. As well some people cannot afford or do not buy guns for protection. So is gun ownership a right or a privilege?
It is an American right. And so is healthcare. As such, forcing everyone to pay for a right they already have is wrong. Everyone must pay the healthcare reform tax, but not everyone wants healthcare. Those who are perfectly healthy and exercise their RIGHT to choose NOT to have healthcare and instead invest in good healthy food and exercise will be forced to pay too. This is taking away a right in itself. What if it was flipped? If owning a gun was forced upon everyone?
So then what is a privilege in America? You have the RIGHT to own a gun or not, the RIGHT to own healthcare, or not. What does the word privilege mean? Anything desired up and above the rights.
Owning a yacht is a privilege.
