I think it's more a matter of the fact that most people only think about their own situation. So when they're healthy and don't need to use healthcare much, they won't support any system which they feel supports "freeloaders". However, if/when they get a serious illness and can't afford the costs, then they'll do an about face and suddenly want a system that covers everything. No ability to think about anyone but themselves.
