A public good? Sure? Something a wealthy and compassionate society has a moral obligation to provide for all? Arguable, but defensible. A right? Not even close.
Freedom of speech was not a right until we declared it a right.
Freedom of religion was not a right until we declared it a right.
Continue on down the Bill of Rights...
Maybe health care isn't a right in our country, but it is in other countries, and it ought to be here.
