7. If he does, I hope someone has the cojones to point out that
18,000 Americans a year die unnecessarily because they don't have access to health care. That is the deaths at the WTC on 9-11 times six, every year. No one cares because the deaths are spread out and not hear of. So how is his plan going to make sure that these people, no doubt the poor and homeless can get health care with no strings attached.
