Personally, i feel that the government has an obligation to supply any and all of its citizens with necessary health care. My argument is that living healthily is a right, and people's rights should be supported by the government. I do not feel that things like Health Care, Education, Prisons, electricity, water, national defense,insurance, and other things of that nature should be part of the private sector. The problem with putting necessary things in the private sector is that the private sector is by definition seeking a profit. People's heath should not be based on profit. The Death Panels that Sarah Palin spoke of exist in the privatized health care system, through people who's jobs it is to kick people off their health care whenever they get sick, and to mention that these people get bonuses for doing that adds more to my point.

Awaiting responses

The Finnish healthcare system's working just fine, thank you. And the private sector still exists as an alternative to people who want instant treatment.

Compared to the US, I'd say just about anywhere has decent healthcare. Zimbabwe? Probably.

Sigh, well, whether we like it or not, looks like public healthcare is here to stay (at least here in the US). Quite frankly, I don't know about other countries and their healthcare. But what I do know is this: anything the US government runs (with the exception of the military) is run so badly that it makes me ashamed to admit that I'm a citizen. The government can't even manage to run the department of motor vehicles well! If I have to wait in line for three hours to get a DRIVERS LICENSE, how much hassle do you think people will have to go through to get a kidney transplant? I don't know, but I'd rather not have to find out.

The bigger problem with the Supreme Court's recent ruling is not healthcare itself, however. By deeming Obamacare a tax, the high court has set a precedent that it's okay for the government to perform social engineering using extremely high and extremely targeted taxes to promote or discourage behavior that the government likes or dislikes. Essentially the Supreme Court has opened up a backdoor for the government to sneak into our private, personal lives and control us as much as they want. The Founding Fathers never perceived that this would be an issue when they said the government could levy taxes.
