Healthcare? A Right?

I just had the kids do a quick search of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, and they were unable to find the "Right to Healthcare" anywhere. Perhaps it's in the new and improved Constitution?

Anyway, Bill Whittle hits one OUT OF THE FREAKING PARK:

But these new so-called “rights” are about the government — who the Founders saw as the enemy — giving us things: food, health care, education... And when we have a right to be given stuff that previously we had to work for, then there is no reason — none — to go and work for them. The goody bag has no bottom, except bankruptcy and ruin.

Does that ring a little familiar these days? Because isn’t the danger here that if you’re offered something for nothing… you’ll take it?

Only it’s not something for nothing. “Free” health-care costs us something precious, and no less precious for being invisible. Because there’s a word for someone who has their food, housing and care provided for them… for people who owe their existence to someone else.

And that word is “slaves.”

Of course, RACIST!!ELEVENTY!!!!11!!

There, I've saved Mai the trouble.
