On Newly-Discovered Rights

When earning and having become decoupled, new rights can be found everywhere. For example, many supporting universal healthcare claim it should be a right. Since there is no longer a connection between getting and earning (hello $1.85T deficit!), they can claim anything as a right.

A more accurate version of the statement would be this: those that cannot afford healthcare have the right to force you to earn it for them.

Didn't we already do that? Household debt now stands around $550K each, what with all the Federal obligations to the poor and all. With $550K in debt, just about everyone in the country is flat broke.
