      This is a big argument for having Medicaid cover dental as well -- people with decent teeth have an easier time getting jobs. People whose diabetes is under control have an easier time getting and keeping jobs. Etc. etc. etc.

      People without access to medical care are more likely to become disabled, and to apply for SSI-Disability because they have trouble working AND SSDI comes with a Medicare card.

      I am hoping the ACA helps eliminate some of the incredible distortion throughout our whole economy due to the way we've been doing health insurance the past 60 years.
