"Healthcare is important. People get sick and injured. As compassionate human beings, we should do what we can, within reason, to see that people are treated -- especially when they don’t have the means to get treatment themselves. We can build and support charity hospitals. We can volunteer for free clinics. We can take sensible policy measures that will reduce the costs of and increase access to medical goods and services. But we cannot pretend that healthcare is a right." (07/18/14)
