"Access" is Bullshit

As Josh Marshall says, "Access" is bullshit. What counts is "Coverage". And given the sharp reduction in money proposed to be spent, what's coming now is a whole lot of worthless "Access":
Here is the simple secret of health insurance and health care provision policy: You can create efficiencies and savings by constructing functioning markets. But at the end of the day, more money equals more care. Or in the proxy we judge these things by, more money means more people are insured. If you see a plan that costs a lot less money than Obamacare, it means many fewer people will be covered. It's as simple as that.
