<<Medical care is a commodity like any other.

Field surgery is like a crate of onions and treating diabetes is like subscribing to cable TV? Or did you mean 3-months of radiation/chemo are like owning an oil well and getting a root canal is like harvesting a field of soybeans?

Feh. Medical care is like nothing else.

Meaning it's absurd to say that you have a claim on the skills of highly trained people and institutions if you were a fool and failed to protect yourself in case you wanted such services.

In short, there is zero "right" to health care in my book. If you want it, better plan on how you are going to be able to pay for what you want.
