In short, there is zero "right" to health care in my book.

It's not a right if somebody loses in order for you to exercise it. If you exercise your right to free speech, nobody loses. If you exercise your right to lawful assembly, your right to bear arms, your right to refuse to self-incriminate, nobody loses. But in order to exercise your "right" to health care, the gov't has to take stuff from other people by force in order to provide it.

Let's be honest and at least get the terminology right: It's medical welfare, not a right.
