Pointing to life expectancy is somewhat of a red herring as variances from the worst to the best is less than 5 years anyways, in the margin of error statically. The true debate is about having access to health care by just being a citizen, not by privilege, a person who loses his job shouldn't have to sell his home to pay for premiums. The role of government is to take care of it's citizens, all of them, the covenant is established with taxation in which we pool our resources for the benefit of all. Leaving health care in private hands keeps the control away from the citizen as he has no influence electorally on how it's managed.
