So, rather than ask if it's a right - ask "is it sensible"? See above to help inform the answer.

Yes, health care is sensible. We as a nation should work to reduce costs to make it affordable. Changing who pays for it does nothing to reduce the actual cost. Changing who pays may well enable the costs to rise, as abuse is easier when paid for by someone else.
