That thrill will fade when they die waiting for an appointment, dingbat.

Many of the offenders have insurance or Medicaid.
Both are avoiding the use of available drop-in clinics
assuming you are referring to non-hospital "prompt care" facilities, why would anyone with insurance go to a "drop-in clinic" where the personnel and facilities are far below hospital standards?

Look at what happened in History when a person was not prepared to lead...

'Barracks emperors'

"There were approximately fourteen barracks emperors in 33 years, producing an average reign of a little over two years apiece. The resulting instability in the imperial office and the near constant state of civil war and insurrection threatened to destroy the Roman Empire from within and left it vulnerable to attack from without.

...

the barracks emperors tended to be low-class commoners (often from outlying parts of the empire); the first barracks emperor, Maximinus Thrax, had begun his military career as an enlisted soldier. A barracks emperor could not boast of a distinguished family name or a successful career as a statesman or public servant; rather, he had only his military career to recommend himself, and his only influence was the points of his soldiers' swords..."

Mind boggling...

"The man who can sweep the greatest number of fragments of political power into one heap will govern the rest. The strongest man in one form or another will always rule. If the government is a military one, the qualities which make a man a great soldier will make him a ruler. If the government is a monarchy, the qualities which kings value in counsellors, in administrators, in generals, will give power.

Wire-pullers...puppets...

In a pure democracy, the ruling men will be the Wire-pullers and their friends, but they will be no more on an equality with the people than soldiers or Ministers of State are on an equality with the subjects of a Monarchy.

In some ages, a powerful character, in others cunning, in others power of transacting business, in others eloquence, in others a good hold upon commonplaces and a facility in applying them to practical purposes, will enable a man to climb on his neighbours’ shoulders and direct them this way or that, but under all circumstances the rank and file are directed by leaders of one kind or another who get the command of their collective force."

The FACTS is that the democrats lied about the emergency room visits--and it appears they continue to do lie to this day. See above.

Hackers have thrown about 16 attacks at the US's HealthCare.gov website, a top US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) official says.

According to CNN, Acting Assistant Homeland Security Secretary Roberta Stempfley of the Office of Cybersecurity and Communications says that the attacks, now under investigation, all failed.

Ms. Stempfley testified at a hearing of the House Homeland Security (HHS) Committee, saying that the attempts were made between 6 and 8 November, but that none were successful.

Authorities are also investigating a separate report of a denial of service (DoS) tool designed to bombard the healthcare site with more requests than it can handle without going belly-up.

The tool was spotted for download from a few sites and mentioned in social media, as Arbor Networks researcher Marc Eisenbarth first described in a blog posting on 7 November.

Eisenbarth wrote at the time that there's been no evidence that HealthCare.gov has been subjected to any significant denial of service attacks since it went live in October.

He also said that the detected tool's request rate, non-distributed attack architecture and other limitations mean that the tool is "unlikely to succeed in affecting the availability of the healthcare.gov site."

The tool is designed to put a strain on the site by repeatedly alternating requests to the https://www.healthcare.gov and https:www.healthcare.gov/conta ct-us addresses.
