Why is it okay for the USA to provide free health care for Iraq citizens but not USA citizens?

USAID has helped strengthen essential primary health care services throughout Iraq. USAID-supported emergency campaigns in 2005 alone immunized 98% of children between 1-5 years old (3.62 million) against measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) and 97% of children under five (4.56 million) against polio. USAID partners have trained 11,400 staff at over 2,000 community-based centers in almost every province to managing malnutrition in children. Over 600 primary health care centers have been provided with 'clinic in a box' kits of key equipment and furniture; over 2,500 primary health care workers have been trained to expand the availability of essential primary health care services to children under five.

  • I don't think they should give it to anyone. That's just my opinion. Leave that for charity agencies...

    Oh yeah, they are really do a GREAT job!
    If you leave something like healthcare just to charity agencies (because many Americans cannot afford healthcare) you wind up with things like the rural health clinics. Which are great but it is one day every 6 months or so and people have to wait in line for HOURS (even waiting in line the night before) because you can only see so many people in one day... many people have to leave at the end of the day without being seen by a doctor.

    Healthcare should be left to charities alone, there aren't enough to cover the millions who have no health insurance. Healthcare should be a right for ALL people in our country, not just a privilege for those who can afford it.
