Democrats believe that healthcare is a basic human right.

…Unless of course you disagree with them.

Illinois democrats just introduced a bill that would force unvaccinated COVID patients to pay out of pocket for their medical care.

The bill, HB 4259, is sponsored by State Democratic Rep. Jonathan Carroll.

Carroll claims that his wife came up with the idea for the bill.

He also says that vaccinated people should not have to “carry the burden of people that aren’t following what the science and what the doctors are telling us.”

The Daily Wire has more on this disturbing bill:

An Illinois Democratic state representative introduced a new bill on Monday that would force unvaccinated patients to pay their own medical expenses if they receive hospital treatment for COVID-19.

State Democratic Rep. Jonathan Carroll sponsored the new legislation, HB 4259, that seeks to encourage Illinois residents to receive a vaccination.

The bill proposes “a person who is eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine and chooses not to be vaccinated shall pay for health care expenses out-of-pocket if the person becomes hospitalized because of COVID-19 symptoms.”

Carroll argued that more people should be vaccinated.

“The vaccine is proven to be the one thing that is stopping the severity of COVID-19, and we are seeing more variants popping up,” Carroll told WCIA-TV on Monday.

WGN TV News has more from State Democratic Rep. Jonathan Carroll and his proposed bill:

The sponsor of the bill, State Rep. Jonathan Carroll (D-57th District), said he got the idea from his wife — who asked why the government picks up the hospital bill for people who are unvaccinated.

“It’s very frustrating that we’re being asked to carry the burden of people that aren’t following what the science and what the doctors are telling us,” Carroll said.

Carroll’s bill would amend the state’s insurance code so that a person who is eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine and chooses not be vaccinated must pay for health care expenses out-of-pocket if the person becomes hospitalized because of COVID.

I guess healthcare is no longer a human right...
