Why not? Why not just push for a full NHS like Europe at this point instead? No one should have to be paying for health care in this country, we're far too wealthy to let such basic services go unchecked. This is a start, not the best, but a start. Everyone I know has been denied health care because they had migraines, a colonoscopy, high blood pressure, and even sinus problems. The industry only wants to insure people who will never go to the doctor. It's a ridiculous situation.
