    Actually yes. Because people are lazy and often fail to do the right thing. That's why we have LAWS. In fact, if men were angels, that is to say, if men were always to do the right thing, we wouldn't even have a constitution, as a couple of framers noted. We have the peoples bill of rights, which protects American citizens (well, it's suppose to anyway) from government excess, over reach, for the stated purpose above. The very fact that the 1986 law came into effect was because some hospitals were not doing the right thing.

    Well, that is just saying a bunch of nothing.

    Hospitals have a right to not receive Medicare benefits I suppose, and then turn people away. But governments first responsibility is to the general welfare of the people. What could be more beneficial to ones welfare then providing support during a health emergency. As the administrator of Medicare, the government provides funding to many hospitals, hospitals that they want to make sure are providing emergency care to all within our borders, even if they have no proof of citizenship.

    So what, because they accept Medicare they must serve people? Is that it? Do you wish to define the term "general welfare" and what the founders meant by that term?

    Yes, they must. And there's a HUGE list of rules that doctors and hospitals must do if they take Medicare. Owning a medical billing company, I'm intimate with many of them.

    Do you have anything besides the law to support your position? Sorry, but I consider what you're doing a fallacy and not worth my time to deal with.

    The poll is about mandating people to provide others care.
