Health care for prisoners vs the homeless

If we will give a man better health care for being a felon rather than unemployed or homeless, our society has made a wrong turn somewhere. I'm not saying we shouldn't take care of certain people, even people who have wronged us, but I am saying that if the level of care available to a prisoner far outstrips that available to someone starving and dying on the streets, or someone who just can't afford to pay, then something has gone horribly wrong.

PS - Then again, some people would refuse it as "charity".
PPS - I don't think health care is one of those helping hands you should turn down.
