Progressives want to make the false claim healthcare is a "Right"

For tax year 2015, the ACA penalty is 2% of your household's annual taxable income, or $325 per adult and $162.50 per child, to a maximum of $975. For tax year 2016, the penalty will rise to 2.5% of your income, or $695 per adult and $347.50 per child, to a maximum of $2,085.

Don't see healthcare as a right under the ACA  ! The Progressive narrative fails again !

All rights have to be earned, even respect.

Health care is not a right but should be available in a society in which everyone is made fully aware of it's cost and contributes proportionately to its financing through a 'national insurance' form of tax completely separate from all existing forms of taxation.

Such a facility should have a strictly enforced 'sliding scale' of availability for those requiring to utilize its services.

By that I mean a child who is ill through no fault of its own should be extended priority over some whiskey swilling, fast food gobbling, 100 fags a day moron whose sickness is a result of his/her chosen lifestyle.

Those whose income disables them from making payments towards the scheme's national insurance contributions should be required to commit themselves to a legally binding 'payment plan' which would see them making a mutually agreed partial payment towards the cost of their medical treatment.

Remembering correctly the Bongo(?) through his owned healthcare policy shows healthcare as not being a right. But the Left in this country avoid the reality of which is fact.

Healthcare is a legal right in most developed countries. This is not the case in the US.

Yes, they do, and it is just a plot for votes. When the immigrants (legal or not) come streaming in, liberals give them free health care, therefore the immigrants vote for them. THE LIBERALS DO NOT CARE IF SOME POOR SOUL OUT THERE CAN'T PAY FOR MEDICAL EXPENSES, THEY JUST WANT POWER!!
