Nobody has the right to health care. We have needs, wants and desires, but we do not have the right to somebody else's time, knowledge or skill. We all have the need for food, clothing and shelter, but we do not have a right to the farmer's produce, the builder's houses, nor the manufacturer's clothing items.

Likewise, we do not have the right to doctors' time, knowledge and training.

A government that has the power to endow rights also has the power to take away your rights. That is a powerful and scary government. We as a nation are getting into deep trouble.
