    People didn't get sick or injured in the 17th, 18th, 19th or 20th century?

    No more than you have a right to a Rolls Royce.

    well, then, maybe we should make it an entitlement and request you chip in your fair share to help the cause. that sounds reasonable to me. I'll be happy to chip in my fair share.

    Sure but corporations didnt exist then like today. Healthcare was on us. Insurance didnt even exist for a lot of that period.

    Mr. bonehead,

    It already is an entitlement. The trouble is with entitlements is that when you give someone free stuff, they come to think if it as a right.

    Thank you for agreeing with me that HC is a necessity for all of us but a Rolls is a luxury not needed by anyone.
    You Republicns are despicable!

    very true. but the cost was quite reasonable at that time. sure, it was a strain on the average income, but it was not a bankrupting strain.
