"But the problem with medical insurance is that it is a NECESSITY and as such cannot be relied upon on a free market basis. Even Adam Smith said that."

Really? Adam Smith said "medical insurance" was a necessity? Wow, he was progressive, since "medical insurance" DID NOT EXIST until long after Smith died!
