Mitigate, but not eliminate. Which is Dave's point.

But Dave's plan introduces other risks that he can't eliminate, either, like the risk of the insurance company unilaterally changing terms or the risk of the insurance company becoming insolvent. And he doesn't even really try to mitigate those risks.

If he's allowed to ignore risks without even attempting to mitigage, then why can't mitigated risks be ignored?
