    Free at point of service. The USAs healthcare is comparable in effectiveness to places like Cuba because for all the general technological advancement and higher education in place the healthcare system is backwards.

    “Universal healthcare” is like putting the horse behind the wagon. What is more important to sustain our “unalienable Right” to “Life,” food or healthcare, or both? I say both! Therefore, the US should have “universal” grocery stores where I could get my food for free; so I could live another day!

    Ah, so he meant "free" in the Orwellian sense of demanding a massive tax increase.

  • @CYDdharta, completely agree. There is no free lunch.  "Free" will basically be an ineffective program that will just raise taxes and waste money. Let individuals make decisions how to spend their hard earned wages instead of centralized government.
