As usual Thomas Sowell nails it, "affordable" never is

When the word "affordable" leaves the lips of a politician, RUN FOR YOUR LIVES!

After political crusades for "affordable housing" ended up ruining the housing market and much of the economy with it, many of the same politicians are now carrying on a crusade for "affordable health care." But what you can afford has absolutely nothing to do with the cost of producing anything. Refusing to pay those costs means that you are just not going to continue getting the same quantity and quality-- regardless of what any politician says or how well he says it.
