Hey Bernie,
What is health care?

From where does it come?

Did God create health care when he created Government? You know, before he created man and woman.

Or does health care come from other people?

The answer is yes, Mr. Sanders, heath care does come from other people.

Specifically, health care is a service provided by humans to other humans.

Webster’s even defined it that way.

efforts made to maintain or restore health especially by trained and licensed professionals…

Even pills and the hated medical devices, which are the easiest targets for blame spreaders such as yourself, are created by humans for the benefit of other humans.

Yet you want to make health care a right.

Here’s what you tweeted.

I do think that we can fulfill the legacy of presidents F.D.R., Truman, and L.B.J. and guarantee health care for all people as a right.

You want to make medications a right. You want to make treatment by a doctor a right. You want to make nurse care a right.

A RIGHT!?!

The right to the services of a trained and licensed professional.

Guaranteed.

We know we’re repeating, but we’re surprised people are so obtuse.

Perhaps we should be clear.

THE RIGHT TO HEALTHCARE = THE RIGHT TO THE SERVICES OF ANOTHER HUMAN BEING.

Just because we’re riding our unicycles to your Vermont pad doesn’t mean we don’t understand a few things. These are government endowed rights to FREE services of another human being.

Here’s a future scenario:

Call the cops, she’s not treating me!
For FREE.
Arrest her! It’s my right.
Ask Bernie. He said so.

That sounds a lot like forced labor.

We don’t like forced labor.

We don’t want to be serfs.

Not even indentured servants.

There’s no liberty in indentured servitude.

We like libery, Bernie. Give us the liberty to choose, to strive, to struggle, to earn.

Sadly, that’s the opposite of what you’re preaching.
