Coveting Healthcare

As I've written before:
The socialist argument for redistribution requires a populace that actively violates the tenth commandment and a government that abets them by violating the eighth. Here's a refresher:
TEN: 'You shall not covet your neighbor's house; you shall not covet your neighbor's wife, nor his male servant, nor his female servant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that is your neighbor's.'

EIGHT: 'You shall not steal.'
Thinking about that in the context of the current healthcare debate has led me to this question which is worse: one person coveting a million dollars or a thousand people each coveting a thousand dollars worth of healthcare?
