Everyone should look up how much the USA spends each year on free dialysis. Now, ask why people who need dialysis deserve life saving treatment, and people with diabetes do not.

There is no answer to that -- they both deserve lifesaving treatment.

Then ask why people who need acute care, do not deserve life saving treatment.

There is no answer to that -- because health care should be universal.
