If you believe that there is no governmental or social role for health care financing then there should be no social obligation for health care itself. If Mr Collett should be seriously injured or if he gets a life threatening illness will he choose to die or will he accept the care that he knows he will be provided to him even if he can't pay? The guy is a parasite who is just gaming the system so that he doesn't have to pay his fair share.

Why not just make available for ALL the same "Healthcare" our congress gets?
