He didn't say anyone. He said for somebody who is making 25-35K per year who is given free health care, it is a really big deal. He did not say that everyone who is in that income threshold qualifies for the free healthcare - just that the people who do qualify for free health care are receiving a very significant benefit relative to their financial straights.

Fine. Somebody making 25K, 30K, 35K means it is not anybody making more than that. But it does mean anybody making that. In fact, many of the somebodies at those income rates won't qualify, and will have to pay. And it won't be into perpetuity, unless, I suppose, one feels that they all lack ambition to improve their lots.

You place qualifications on it specific to the law. Other than income, he did not. He could have said "many people" or something that would suggest he knows the distinctions you raise -- but he did not. So he earns whatever grief he gets. He could have been careful and precise, like you, but he chose not to be.
