And you use of 'fair' and 'all' is misleading. What you mean is equal, even if it is unfair. What's 'fair'? Say for example, an overstayer who has never paid a penny into the Treasury, being treated like a citizen and allowed access to say fertility treatment? That's patently unfair, but if you want 'equal' treatment for everyone in the country, that would be what you're promoting. What would make it fair, would be covering the basics for the 10-20% of the population that can't provide for themselves. Everyone else is then responsible for their own individual healthcare needs and hence, own PERSONAL HEALTH. A lower tax burden through reduced government spending, would then give breathing room and opportunity for altruism/charity, look at post-war USA for example.
