We should also aim at getting health care to everyone in the world and not just Europe and the US.

And who cares about the history of helping the poor not working, they're still people!

if anything, people need more healthcare

aus·ter·i·ty/ôˈsteritē/ Noun:

Sternness or severity of manner or attitude.
Extreme plainness and simplicity of style or appearance.

I don't see what Austerity has to do with closing hospitals

If healthcare is a right, whom has the obligation? Or is this just another thing leftists and children think just pops out of the sky?

Rights are what the government lets you figure out for yourself, not what it agrees to take from someone else on your behalf.

Maybe we need to establish 8th grade civics as a "human right".
