9. Exactly how many people need to go without health care
for your plan to work?

How many direly ill people need to be sent across town to a different hospital in order to increase the quality of our doctors?

How many people must spend sleepless nights worrying about getting sick in order for the rest of us to receive world class medical care?

How many people do we need to kick out of line altogether in order to make the line shorter for you?

How does decreasing the demand (by eliminating many from the system altogether) increase the quality?
