Tom Miller: Calling healthcare a right is a simplistic argument | Miami Herald

August 16, 2019

Calling healthcare a “basic human right” may make an advocate feel more politically virtuous and caring. Nevertheless, the phrase oversimplifies and stunts the necessary debate remaining over how our healthcare system should and could operate better.

The rights-based approach to healthcare reform remains wrong as a matter of U.S. law, history, politics and economics. We can do better than just recycle another round of these empty words.
