Sometime you have to push a pill down the throat of someone to help them. You guys need basic healthcare.

It must be infuriating for other countries to see this from the outside looking in, but here's the basic hangup.

We've got a 35-40% segment of the population that believes they're being asked to pay for anything and everything. The Right Wing panders to this and since the 1950s they've managed to push this into a general cross-section of "HEALTHCARE ISN'T A RIGHT, EVERYONE MUST PAY THEIR OWN WAY". It was galvanized during the Red Scare days as socialism and now that's being turned into a welfare scare.

While the scare factor is being chipped away at, it is still seen as mandated welfare by a sizeable portion of the American voting populace.
