My issue with national healthcare, other than the previously mentioned "fatties/people who eat themselves into diabetes/people who drink their way out of a liver/people who smoke/etc" issue, deals with age. At my age, I rarely get sick. The age range I'm in, known by doctors as the "young invincibles," gets sick so rarely paying into a national health care system makes absolutely no sense. The last time I went to the doctor was for a physical for college, and other than the time I got my wisdom teeth out I can't even remember the last time I went to the doctor's. So for me, a program where no one could opt out would be ridiculous. Just my two cents.
