JJR, forget his name, investigated the universal health plans in countries around the world and found that the reason, in all cases, that countries adopted universal health care was for reasons of morality. The people in these nations felt that in a time when all countries have high wealth, thus the ability to treat a whole population, it was immoral to withhold care based on inability to pay.
I have to say that I've always considered Hawkins the dufiest of all the dufy writers on Town Hall. This article simply confirms.

And now we have a journalist diagnosing someone as mentally ill. The witch hunt for the mentally has begun in Congress as well. Soon we'll be hiding the mentally ill in our attics from the armed vigilantes roaming the street. What this abortionist has done is awful, but so is war. I hope right wingers will be as avid in demanding day after day of pictures of both soldiers and civilians maimed and blown to bits. I suspect that one thing which Is hindering coverage by the MSM is that they know if they covered it the right wing would be all over it with irrational and emotional emotives "proving" that women were better off in feudal society. Actually, right wing journalists could score some points by reporting facts without irrationality.

It was the founding fathers who supported immoral slavery; had nothing to do with the free market - at least for the slaves.
We cannot justify the holding of false beliefs, such as evolution is wrong and the big bang is wrong, on the basis of religious liberty. Wrong is wrong.
