Matt Canovi Biography

President of the American Defense Academy
Con to the question "Should All Americans Have the Right (Be Entitled) to Health Care?"

“Healthcare in a free society is not a function of Government. The Government needs to get out of the healthcare business and allow the free market to flourish. Healthcare is not a right. Rights are inherently intangible, healthcare is a commodity. When the government starts declaring commodities to be a ‘human right’ they assume redistribution powers that are not afforded to them by constitution.”
