So conservatives are against it because they want dying people to run up a bunch of medical bills before they die? Sorry I don’t understand

No, seems you did understand

Why would they want that? I’m dense.

GOP is pro big business. They'd rather money be funneled into the bloated medical system than building intergenerational wealth

Medical debt is a three for one for the billionaire class.

Make money treating you, make money keeping you in the workforce, make money keeping your kids in the workforce.

A case of cancer or a catastrophic injury quickly turns into generational poverty, in the land of the free.

So if my parents die from cancer and rack up medical debt as they’re going out, am I expected to pay it off?

Not you personally, but their estate will need to pay outstanding bills. I just lost my dad after he spent the last four months in & out of the hospital and I’m not looking forward to sorting through the mountain of medical bills headed my way (I am the executor of his estate).
