    with the farmer you heard on the radio.   Granted, it's better to "still be in the conversation" than not to be.

    But I don't think you'd get too far with "I'd ask him how he thinks we could cover everyone. What might a good plan look like?"  He'll tell you that wanting more folks to have it, in no way means us helping them to get it.  I predict he'll tell you he wants more people to have it by getting it for themselves, from what the market makes available.

    Thoughtful and well-written diary.  We can't make allies if  we don't extend our hands in friendship.  But many, perhaps most, such overtures are rejected.
