A lot of the emotional statements in support of nationalsocializing health care include the phrase "A country (meaning the government) as wealthy as this one can..." or words to that effect.
There's a problem there, a clear indication that the speaker Doesn't Get It on a fundamental level: This country's government isn't wealthy at all; in fact, it is deep in debt. The fellow who says otherwise is assuming that your money, your employer's money, every citizen's income, ultimately belongs to The State and that The State has every right to decide how it is to be spent.
Don't fall for it. It's your money.
