We live in a country of laws. We do not live in anarchy where anything goes. We pay taxes not because we want to but because we are compelled to support the running of our government. Healthcare is a tax for all, by all. At one time or another we will all need to use the healthcare system so it's really not such a hardship to pay for it. Those that think otherwise, have not felt the anguish of being in the hospital and having to make choices about life or death based on the size of your wallet. It is priceless and if we think of ourselves as an advanced nation, it is untrue until we have healthcare for all.
