"Stark differences" on health care

Yesterday the two US presidential candidates both demonstrated once again they have no idea at all about either the causes or the cure of the man-made economic storm now sweeping the world from its source in the States -- I'm going to stop "markets running wild" said Obama -- "what he said," said McCain -- and proceeded to lay out their starkly different views on health care:

"Health care is a right," said one.

"Health care is a responsibility," said the other.

In fact, it's neither -- not that either of those bozos would know.  I doubt they'd even know what a right look like, not unless it jumped up in front of them dressed as a campaign contribution.

    Health care is a tradeable service. It's a personal responsibility, if you want to put it that way, but not a government responsibility.
