We don’t have this kind of commercial problem when we buy other products and services in the marketplace. We pick, choose, browse that fit our needs and price points and are generally happy with the choice. But not with health insurance.

Virtually everything we buy or produce are considered commodities, not rights or privileges. So when you hear someone ask if “health care is a right or a privilege” the correct answer is neither. This doctor thinks there’s a combination. He’s stuck. It is a commodity like everything else we buy and produce and those posing the question are trying to persuade your into thinking otherwise.
