Absolutely, yes! We are all paying for healthcare, anyway, which many people do not seem to understand. When people do not have health insurance, they use the emergency room because hospitals cannot turn them away. What happens quite often is that people cannot pay their emergency room bills, and the lost funds are passed on to us in higher rates or in taxpayer dollars. This is also the absolute worst way to take care of people, waiting until there is an emergency to address a medical problem that could have been avoided or solved before it became an emergency, and it ties up the emergency room for real emergencies, straining the resources of each hospital. Furthermore, if one's concern is only economic, we will thrive better as a capitalistic nation if everyone is assured healthcare, and the only way to assure this is through government. We would be more productive if we all had healthcare. The cost of sick days is quite a drain on the economy, slowing down businesses significantly. Healthy employees are productive employees. There are other reasons we should have nationalized healthcare, but certainly, these are significant reasons.
