6. Actually, there will still be access problems under this bill
There's the problem that many areas are medically underserved.
Not enough doctors in the area.
And in many states nurse practitioners are restricted by law
(presumably by laws designed to benefit doctors).

There's also the problem that many doctors won't take new
Medicare or Medicaid patients.

And of course the mandate is going to hurt people.
A bargain on a forced purchase is still a bad deal.

But I agree with Flier on his main point.
Neither party is dealing with this issue intelligently.
And many lower-income people will be hurt by it.
