Healthcare is not a right. Healthcare is not something that anyone, poor, or otherwise is entitled to. Healthcare is a service that has to be paid for by somebody. Period. End of story. Of course Democrats like NY Rep. Kathy Hochul would classify healthcare as one of those positive liberties that the framers of the Constitution left out.

In a town hall meeting yesterday, Hochul was asked what part of the Constitution allows the federal government to mandate that religious institutions or anyone else for that matter, cover the cost of healthcare services for free.
Amazingly, Kathy Hochul answers by saying, “Well, basically we’re not looking to the Constitution on that aspect of it.” But even more brazen than that is her clarification of those remarks after the crowd reacts in a manner that you would expect. She goes on to say that the “decision has been made by this Congress” that the American citizens are “entitled to healthcare.”
What statists like Kathy Hochul don’t seem to understand, is that the Congress, the President, the judiciary, and no government entity or bureaucrat has the power to determine what anyone is “entitled” to.
The Constitution of the United States is based on natural law; natural rights, that are endowed by the Creator who created the rights in the first place.
Healthcare is not one of them.
