Most people may argue the practicality but I've met people who argue the principle as well, with rather sickening rationale.
My first "not deep" thought is that if the US moves to a true socialized health care, I'd want tobacco, alcohol, cheeseburgers and tootsie pops banned. I'd want helmets mandatory for bikers. This would just be the start. I have absolutely zero problem paying towards a child needing a cancer treatment or any other reasonable medical scenario. There is a part of me however that pauses when asked to help pay for someone's very poor decision. I know it's an impossible line to draw, but there are really terrible decisions being made all the time and I'm not sure I want to pay for them. Does that make me a bad person, I don't know.
