Quoted from flashinstinct:
I guess it boils down to a different point of view. I pay taxes for things happening all over my province for the betterment of all citizens that live in it. Same things goes for our healthcare. I pay taxes so that someone can get heart surgery, or an operation to get a donated kidney for free. If rolls were switched I would appreciate the same if ever I needed healthcare help. I'm completely fine with that.
I'm pretty sure we ALL pay taxes for the betterment of ALL citizens. Been that way for a LONG time.
