Barack Obama says “no one ought to go broke when they get sick in the richest nation on Earth.” He also says “no one should go broke because they chose to go to college.”

Question: Does “no one” include the government or society as a whole? I only ask because of the  trillion-dollar deficits that stretch way into the future.
