Maybe this is what he meant by 'everyone is insured...'.
Increasing the denominator:
Republicans on the Hill are taking a close look at an idea they believe could actually expand health coverage: just enroll everyone in a health plan unless they opt out.
Hill staffers and conservative health wonks have been tossing the idea around for awhile as a way to replace Obamacare's individual mandate while continuing to cover everyone with pre-existing conditions — something that becomes too expensive without healthy people to cover the costs.
Many now point to auto-enrollment as one of the best ways to cover more people without bleeding federal dollars.
Long story short: Enroll Everyone (ie increase the denominator) ... to... replace the individual mandate (ie denominator = 1) ... which is .... too expensive.
Art of the deal.... ie an acquisitor's approach vs. the former intellectual's approach? Perhaps.
If so the libertarians won't like it...
Republicans are starting to take a serious look at auto-enrollment. https://t.co/pI9B3bw4Ow— Axios (@axios) January 19, 2017
