Unlike Medicare, ObamaCare and Medicaid seek to make medical care/insurance into a basic right for some at the expense of others. This is income redistribution at its worst. All people need food, clothing and shelter yet they are not rights, we are all expected to work and provide them for ourselves and to our dependents. As the gov't creates many more entitlement programs the separation from the need to work and a having a decent standard of living grows ever smaller. In the liberal, utopian society, work will be required only to secure luxuries, as all things considered to be needs will be supplied by the gov't as 'rights', through taxation of the (ever dwindling) productive. If a person gets a pet that they can not (or will not) feed and properly care for, then they are charged with a crime and the pet is taken to a shelter. If that same person has a child that they can not (or will not) feed and properly care for, then they are considered needy and given a gov't check as a reward - is that insane or what?
