    You underestimate both the sheer number of Americans and overestimate the health infrastructure available to them. The US has a tragic shortage of practitioners and without addressing that first any kind of universal access here would make the waiting lines to see a doctor years and years long. People also need to learn more about Medicare before they demand that for all of us. Medicare is not free, it's not that good, many doctors don't take it and most seniors on that programs also have to buy supplemental insurance because their government healthcare covers so little. Medicare for all isn't the panacea sometimes think it is. People championing this must not have any elderly relatives or else they'd know how truly not great this would be.

    No-one is denied medical  care for a life threating condition, you pay for your own sex change operations and enhancements.

    Why don't you cite for us the Article or Amendment to the Constitution that allows the federal government to interfere in health care at all.  BETCHA CAN'T!!  No, sparky, the "general welfare clause" does NOT apply unless you can be the first person to cite which of the 18 enumerated powers applies.  BETCHA CAN'T!!  The Tenth Amendment prohibits the federal government from interfering AND MEDDLING in anything it is not specifically authorized, BY THE CONSTITUTION, to interfere and meddle in.  It won't be "free" unless you can figure out how to get medical care and supplies providers to provide their goods and services for free  Good luck with that, sparky.

    Because NOTHING IS "FREE" !... America is about Freedom and Liberty !

    To "GIVE FREE STUFF" you will have to OPPRESS  others.  Take money / hard work/ personal success and give it to people who can not or do not achive this for "THEMSELVES" ....

    In America you are free to succeed and free to Fail ! As you See Fit !

    US gives free health care to everyone who makes less than 17 thousand dollars a year, as well as to every child and elderly. Everybody else should buy health insurance or get one from an employee. Government owned health facilities can't give a good healthcare by definition, because government employees are unmotivated since the salary has no link to performance.

    WHY is it that countries Like the UK, Canada etc. Let some people dies because THE GOVERNMENT DECIDES who get care and specialists and Many of them actually come or try to come to the USA for medical care.. 

    '

    SUCH AS THE PARENTS of a LITTLE BABY IN ENGLAND which DIES Because the UK GOVERNMENT REFUSED TO LET THE PARENTS BRING THEIR child to the USA where SPECIALISTS SAID THEY WOULD TREAT IT FREE.. 'THE GOVERNMENT DECIDED tolet it DIE Instead of letting it get help.

    No-one anywhere gets free healthcare. It's just a matter of who pays. Who should pay the $40,000 for my recent gall bladder surgery ?

    I personally see a step forward being Single Payer. It's the one HUGE advance on what we have today.
