Except you completely ignore that this is EXACTLY the case now. You can afford to pay for a doctor’s office visit out of pocket. If you couldn’t, you would have been stuck with the crappy HMO visit, or if you couldn’t afford insurance at all, you would have been forced to wait at home until your child was dire enough that you would have taken him to an ER where you would have waited for hours and you would have gotten the same hurried treatment, probably prescribed a few drugs you couldn’t afford, and then gotten hassled by the hospital to pay your bill.
