People can obviously agree with both- one need not look far before one finds any number of people who believe that taxes should be lower, that the government should provide more, and that we should not have as high a deficit as we do. Whether a person can agree with both and be consistent is another matter entirely.

I do wish we could stop using 'right' as a tool of argument. Words have meanings, and I would love to see many of the arguments around rights be made without use of that particular word but with the intended meanings instead. For myself, the best explanation of the foundational rights in the U.S. is probably here (http://benjaminrosshoffman.com/civics-and-seamonsters-calvin-and-hobbes/) and it does not lend itself well to education and health care being rights.
