Another way of looking at it is to examine the kind of free health care that incarcerated felons get. That's government provided health care, provided as of legally determined right to it (pursuant to various court cases). It seems to me that the general populace who cannot afford their own health care has a reasonable argument that the government should provide it to them at at least the level that convicts get while in jail.

Why stop there with that line of reasoning? Why not free room and board? Free meals? Free clothes?
