I think requiring a large group of people to insure against the same set of risks (even if some of those risks are irrelevant for some people) is hardly irrational. Insurance coverage cannot be infinitely tailored. The exact way ACA categorizes risks is worth discussing, but this video does not add much to that discussion.

ThomasH, the video is not meant to add much to the discussion. It is meant to attract people to join the discussion, using the media tactics we do not like.

True that it can’t be infinitely tailored, but it can be tailored. Evidence is that many people did not have pediatric dental before it was required.
