    I don't understand this objection. "How you qualify it" certainly does matter; "free at point of service" doesn't mean free. Whether it's a good choice of language is a separate issue.

    Saying it is free gives conservative ammunition to discredit it as a massive big government spending program.
    Compared to what? Conservatives will try to do that regardless. Do you have evidence that avoiding the word "free" would undermine their efforts?

      you have paid for it through your tax dollars just like you pay for it now through premiums.

      There is a strong fiscally conservative argument for single payer, but when you throw the word free into the mix you have lost the battle before you even start.

      If you are against sane gun regulations then by definition you support 30,000 deaths a year by firearms.
