The presidential candidates were asked in last night's debate whether health care in America is a right, a responsibility, or a privilege. I have noticed that that, probably through witnessing abuses of the system, not much sits well with us when when it's called a right. We're tired of seeing an entitlement mentality about anything and everything. It's tempting to recoil at the idea of something being a right.
On the other hand, when we begin to think about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, something being a right starts to sound much more reasonable.
What do you think?
