That's not true durtyrute. Healhcare was once affordable, although not always cheap...and no one was turned away. The Progressives were pushing for universal healthcare as far back as the early 1900's before there was a healthcare crisis.
All this govt intervention in healthcare markets has done and pushed up the price and made both doctors and patients unhappy while corporations got the most out of it. It doesn't work. It distorts pricing signals and pushes the demand curve.
