Excuse me, I had trouble reading your post because my eyes were rolling the entire time. It's the same old crap, which leads me to expect that it's probably not worth discussing. But here I go anyway, one last try to see if there's any bit of sense in you:
The issue isn't "whether we're going to lose/spend money on able bodied people." That's not a battle you can fight. What are you going to do, murder the unemployed? Round up all the children living in poor families and abandon them on an island? Anything short of that, and you're stuck with people who are poor and unemployed. Their medical care is going to cost you. Their lack of productivity is going to be a drag on our economy. The question to ask, assuming you're not corrupt, stupid, or dogmatically stuck on an ideology that doesn't work, is this: How do we arrange things to diminish the problems as much as possible.
We have a big complicated system, and it's a bit of a closed system. Everything you do has costs, and there's not a good way to expel the problems. So the issue is, holistically, how do you make this all work as much as possible.
For example, if you provide no medical care for uninsured people, then you still have a negative impact on the economy through loss of productivity due to illness. Plus, if you make people prove they have insurance before treating them, it makes emergency situations complicated-- e.g. some guy falls unconscious in public without ID. He could be rich, he could be poor. Who knows if he has insurance or not. Do you treat him?
So we provide emergency services no matter what, and charge people for them, but poor people go to the emergency room and don't pay. In fact, since they can't get regular medical care, they go to the emergency room for all of their problems, and then don't pay. They wait until their problems are serious, meaning that what might have been cured with a $5 pill several months ago might now require $10k surgery. Yay!
And those costs get passed around to you anyway. Hospitals incur costs on behalf of patients who don't pay, so they pass those costs along to public funding or increased costs for those who can pay. Some poor guy gets $5k in medical care for a serious sinus infection, and it comes out of your taxes and your insurance costs, while $5 worth of antibiotics a few months ago would have fixed the problem. Now his sinuses are all screwed up, and he can't do his job anymore. He's no longer a productive member of society, but his kids still need to eat. That's another drag on our economy.
So do you want to avoid all this mess? You want to lower medical costs? Well then, we need to find a way to allow that poor guy to see a doctor and get that $5 worth of antibiotics. Somehow, I don't know how, and unless it's free or extremely cheap, the guy won't go to see the doctor. He has to take off work, and he's not going to choose to spend $100 to see a doctor for a headache.
So it's not about being benevolent and selfless. It's not about "Oh no, poor rich people are going to spend all of their money supporting poor bums who won't work." It's about making our economy and society work smoothly, so we all make more money and lead safer, happier, more productive lives. Your way of looking at things is all about shooting yourself in the foot in order to be "fair".
