I didn't say 'ultimate goal', I said 'stated goal'.
I think we sort of agree that what was accomplished did nothing to reduce actual health care costs.

I know this makes me sound evil and cold, but I truly believe that medical professionals (including hospital emergency rooms) should be allowed to refuse service to those with no insurance or ability to pay. Medical care at an ER is the only service one can use (demand) and never pay for.

I'd like for anybody with a specialized skill to tell me that they would be willing to provide their skilled services free of charge to anybody that showed up at their place of business if the person demanded it.
