We don’t need to sell handbags if we want decent healthcare
It’s undoubtedly true that consuming health care is of value to us. But as also must be true, we need to create that value so that it can be consumed. And the people who produce health care for us will, with some fraction of their earnings from the taxes paid to produce health care, desire to consume handbags. Thus, in order for them to be willing to produce the health care we desire to consume, someone, somewhere out there, must be producing the handbags that the doctors and nurses desire to consume.
That is, producing handbags for doctors to consume is the price we pay for doctors to produce the health care we desire to consume.
