That's less than $1500 apiece. So what's the problem?

Illinois has always had problems with dead people voting, signing ballot petitions, etc. I don't see why health care would be any different. I'm sure the 12m is a drop in the bucket.

The problem now is any attempt to fix the broken public-private health system will have this anecdote used as an example to keep government out.

Universal healthcare will bankrupt America because there are just too many sick people in America. If America did not send all its healthy citizens to war the chronic situation would be less obvious. But adding the returning wounded veterans to the list of sick Americans just makes the situation worse.
Comparing healthcare systems of other developed countries with America is also unrealistic. Normal healthy people choose countries other than America to migrate to and sick Americans cannot afford to leave America.
Because, Two third of Americans don't have passports. About a quarter cannot point to America on a map and another 37 percent cannot find their state on a map of America. There isn't any treatment for Americanism.
