You're off the rails.
Your exact argument was that people going to the doctor for small problems is the problem with health care.
A sudden influx of insurance-covered population would lead to a brand new problem with health care(the one you just mentioned that I inferred). Know what would cause a sudden influx of insurance-covered population? Obamacare.
A huge percentage of that 30 million are young and healthy.
So, what's this sudden influx of people?
Ummm, if they are "young and healthy", WHY AREN'T THEY WORKING AT JOBS WITH BENEFITS?
This is the biggest problem with ObamaCare. It's throwing trillions of dollars at a SYMPTOM. Why not focus those dollars on job creation, training programs, or tax incentives to small businesses that hire "young and healthy" people?
Back to my original statement: It doesn't solve a ******* thing.
