    what i find lacking is this inference that the number of insured equates to quality of care and affordability.
    The quality of care for the non insured must go up once they get insured ?

      if you are forced to buy insurance but they don't all afford the same "access" to care, then you may still not seek care when needed because you may not be able to cover the deductibles etc... so then we're back to people not getting care.

      that's why the other elements of this story are so important.

        health insurance must not matter re access .
        People with and without health insurance must have the same access then .

        I reject that , health insurance does good .
        Its not perfect , but its better then perfect nothing .

          but they can not afford policies that give them the access they may need, then you're back to the elderly eating cat food.
