THE DEMOCRATS are big fans of “single-payer” and the “right” to have health insurance.
Health insurance is advisable if you live in the United States — far less so if you live in Mexico and many other nations — but a “right”? Just because something is highly desirable does not make it a “right.” The Bill of Rights does not mention medical insurance. Of course, there was no medical insurance when the Bill of Rights was initiated, but that “right” has not been added in the subsequent centuries.
Nor has the “right” to decent housing and parental leave, etc. The Democrat Party loves to make things “rights” when all they are is things you want a lot.
This notion of “rights” is a result of American society’s becoming spoiled, a society that’s never faced an existential threat. No one under the age of 40 can even remember the Soviet Union, which is part of the reason so many whippersnappers are keen on “rights.”
The deserve this. They deserve that. They are ignoramuses.
Single-payer is very popular among Democrats. All those European nations have it, right? And it works great, right? Not so fast there, Bernie bros. Watch the video.
