Dr. Schilling: Those who advocate replacing my countryâ€™s private health insurance system with nationalized health insurance because of the rising costs of medical care fail to consider the high human costs that consumers pay in countries with nationalized insurance: access to high-technology medicine is restricted. Kidney transplants and open-heart surgeryâ€”familiar life-saving proceduresâ€”are rationed. People are denied their right to treatments they want and need.
Dr. Laforte: Your countryâ€™s reliance on private health insurance denies access even to basic, conventional medicine to the many people who cannot afford adequate health coverage. With nationalized insurance, rich and poor have equal access to life-saving medical procedures. And peopleâ€™s right to decent medical treatment regardless of income is not violated.

19. In responding to Dr. Schillihng, Dr. Laforte employs which one of the following argumentative strategies?
(A) showing that the objections raised by Dr. Schilling have no bearing on the question of which of the two systems under consideration is the superior system
(B) calling into question Dr. Schillingâ€™s status as an authority on the issue of whether consumersâ€™ access to medical treatments is restricted in countries with nationalized health insurance
(C) producing counterexamples to Dr. Schillingâ€™s claims that nationalized health insurance schemes extract high human costs from consumers
(D) demonstrating that Dr. Schillingâ€™s reasoning is persuasive only because of his ambiguous use of the key word â€œconsumerâ€

E seems to be the answer.

Dr Schilling is using access to say that "access to high-technology medicine is restricted". But that is a limited way of looking at the access.

What about the access to millions more who need just basic medicine, that is not provided by private health insurance?

Dr Laforte is clearly showing how private insurance is denying access to others.
