My friend just mentioned this to me and I wanted to get your opinions on it:
"You say no one has a right to health care, and I agree. why is it though that we're given the "right" to an attorney's time when we're arrested and can't afford our own attorney? you have a right to a defense, not a right to an attorney at a cost to others. if the health care system is bad now, wait till it's as bad as the legal system. in many jurisdictions you have to be a registered bar member to represent anybody, and more and more attorneys are jumping on the band wagon thinking this is what's needed to keep the legal system in check. fools."
