Your conservative speaker is way off base with what is really going on in America. Anyone who thinks that private healthcare plans are in it for the good of the patient is delusional. Private healthcare plans are profit driven, and often the only oversight comes from within their own organizations. And anyone who works in banking knows that the number one cause of personal bankruptcy comes from catastrophic healthcare costs, usually due to limited or loss of insurance. Pretending that the availability of healthcare plan "choices" is a defensible argument means nothing to the person who cannot afford any plan whatsoever. It just proves that those who are using this argument are insulated, privileged and out of touch.
