I wonder if I'm the only one thinking this when I read your comment. But, why are you helping your friend sign up? The reason that government programs are easily established is because there are citizens who don't see a problem with letting other people pay for something that they need.
Your friend may very well need insurance, be unemployed, and have no income. But, I still don't see why he is entitled to something that other people are forced to pay for.
I'm just a little surprised to see somebody on the DP that doesn't see the conflict of interest there.
