There is no comparison to doctors being paid for their services and slavery.

Paul opposes cutting benefits for current Medicare recipients, Benton said.
"We're going to need to make some other tough choices about how we fix the insolvency problem," he said. "But cutting benefits for current recipients or near recipients would be immoral."
We all pay for those who can't afford to pay for their medical needs. Universal/Single Payer coverage would better manage the cost of healthcare for all of us.
