    The best option to provide healthcare to all is to use the government, your talking about others providing it, I don't see how anyone is forced apart from "taxes" being used by the government on various programs.

    Re: Ted Cruz going on Obamacare

    Well its really neither here nor there as he has no chance being that even if his positions and rhetoric were not extreme, we don't elect assholes for president in this country. The last one we elected was Richard Nixon. Above all, Ted Cruz is a first class arrogant asshole thus has no chance. The thing with assholes like Cruz though is they can rationalize anything. Thus instead of paying for COBRA or going out and just buying a plan directly from an insurer, he went on the exchanges to save some money even though he has done nothing but rail against Obamacare since the day he hit the national stage.

    The next thing you know he will be going to Canada to buy his prescription drugs.

    Who do you think provides people with treatment at hospitals? Robots? Seriously, a right to healthcare would include the delivery of that service. Why is that hard for you to understand?

    Really? Obama is the biggest asshole this country has elected since Clinton, which was the biggest asshole this country elected since Johnson. To be fair though, no one can possibly be a bigger asshole than Johnson.

    If that's your concern, perhaps.

    What's wrong with people who can't afford a service not getting it, though?

    The worst option to provide healthcare...or any other consumer product...to all is to use the government.

    You forgot Nixon.
