    Comments: I enjoyed the clarify of your speech and how well you framed the round.

    I think you chose your framework well, and you stuck to it and defended it throughout the round.

    I do agree that inefficiency examples only speak of how it has been applied and it's not really a fundamental flaw of the idea. Meaning that is has been done wrong does not mean it can't be done right.
    You did a good job presenting your case. I feel that you needed to respond to Scott's case. You needed to respond on whether UHC was the best choice. You started to do so with cost, efficiency, and burden.

    I do feel that when you agreed to his framework, you made your arguments weaker. If UHC is a public good then you make his arguments more important than yours about cost and efficiency.

    The decision is for the Proposition: Scott Klein

    Reason for Decision:

    I'm going to go AFF on this one. NEG agreed to a framework where UHC is a public good. In this framework, as AFF argues and I agree, cost is not the main issue (even if it is AN ISSUE)

    I don't agree that bad examples mean it can' be done right. I think your best case would have implied contesting the framework, because on this framework it's hard to make it. If UHC is a human right, and a public good, how can you not give it to everyone?
