Letter: Foundation of ideal society will cost

Is it so wonderful that some people think that the Obama health care bill is just the definition of utopia?

Case in point: In a conversation with a young women in her twenties, she mentions that her boyfriend has a job but could not cover her for insurance. She was just elated that the Obama care bill will cover all of her medical bills for free. After trying to explain to her that this will not be free, I asked her who is going to pay for her “free” health care? Well, she responded, “the government.” I did not respond. I went home with a headache.
