: then ask: 'Would you care to buy a Big Mac or health care?' When they refuse the latter because they cannot buy it with a dollar, the 'free market' then decides that 'all poor people want is hamburgers'! Yum yum!

Want? What is effectively demanded you mean. Also 'want' comes with a price tag. What if said fellow 'wanted' option B that much more - so much he was willing to gamble the dollar in the hopes of getting a high return - risk it if you will. How much want is want?
