I think the majority opinion here is that it is a good thing, whereas many in America think it's the first step to socialism which they also think is near communism. Where do you stand? (include where abouts in the world you live). I'm from the UK. I'm personally grateful for the NHS, as when I was a baby, I had meningitis. My parents have struggled throughout their entire lives to get by, and would not have been able to repay costs if it were for private medical care (something overlooked in the argument in general - we have a choice, and the NHS is merely the safety net to make sure people don't go without).
