There actually is some benefit to having tax dollars pay for it, but not enough for me to support socialized health care. What is the #1 reason health care is so high right now as it is? Because you subsidize broke people who don't pay for it. When a bum heads to the emergency room and racks up 15k of charges, you think he's going to pay for it? Hell no. Who do you think pays for it? You do, the paying customer. That cost is passed along to you, because the doctor/hospital isn't going to get the collection from the bum. Same for illegal immigrants, people with 29 kids who can't afford them. They aren't paying their health bills. That is passed along to you, so, at least, they have to pay for some of it now if they have any sort of an income at all.
