Healthcare is a Necessity, not a Right, not a Privilege.

It seems to me the debate about healthcare in the U.S. is another example of ideology ruling the day rather than facts.  I do not think that healthcare is a right or a privilege – healthcare is a necessity.  If you fall down the stairs, break one of your legs, and the bone is sticking out, the last thing on your mind is going to be, “Oh, I wonder if I have a right or a privilege to go to the ER and get my leg fixed,” you need to go to the ER and get your leg fixed.  Until we talk about healthcare as a necessity, and what is the most efficient, cost effective way to make sure the most number of people get this necessity, we will not solve this problem.
