This only would encourage wasted money. To say the more you spend the more we'll give you means we as a country are spending more money we don't have. I've lived in a few European countries with "free" healthcare and it is not as glamorous as it sounds. The poor people get free care, and they wait for hours for it and the care is not very good. Doctors are not paid well. The rich can afford private care that is much better with shorter wait lines. Thus increasing the divide between the rich and poor.
