Not Clearly Pro or Con to the question "Should All Americans Have the Right (Be Entitled) to Health Care?"
"I think we are for telling our senior citizens that no one in this country should be denied medical care because of a lack of funds. But I think we are against forcing all citizens, regardless of need, into a compulsory government program, especially when we have such examples, as announced last week, when France admitted that their medicare program was now bankrupt."
