This all caps guy's logic is poor, and obviously fueled by emotion rather than logic. As has been said, regardless of competition, there will be a floor price within the private industry that, no matter what the case, will not be affordable to everyone. There are people in this country that will die by your word, Mr. Caps Man. Let that rest on your head that you have not accounted for a large number of people in bad shape, some of whom came over here in slavery and, by your definition of slavery, never quite got out of the shackles. The more relevant and accurate perspective is that we are all slaves to our own pre existing conditions and diseases, and if youre a proponent of freedom for all, we must all be freed by the shackles these conditions put on us. Don't compulsively preach to us about freedom and slavery when your principles are literally enslaving and killing people in their own homes and wheelchairs.
