Is Healthcare A Right?

This seems to be the pivotal question for the healthcare debate today which is dumb.

I DON'T believe universal healthcare is a right, I just think it's a GOOD IDEA.

The whole point of insurance is to have as large a population as possible participating so as to blunt the impact of a tragedy to any one individual. What could be a larger population than all of the United States?

Moreover I would ask: Isn't making a profit on the failing health of others immoral? Especially in a gambling format?

A universal healthcare system would not only save lives it would save some souls as well.
