“We must stop erroneously arguing that something is our “right” when what we really want is the government to force the wealthy to pay for it.”

In a democracy that is what most people will vote for which is why most western countries spend more of their GDP on their health budget than the USA spends on defence. If Americans want free healthcare, they should encourage Churches to provide it, with donations from the public matched by the Federal Government. Churches will run basic healthcare far cheaper than a corporate profit-seeking healthcare system ever will. This would cover the basics like fixing broken bones and so forth, but if you want a heart transplant; you better get health insurance.
