    If you make insurance mandatory

Incentivised isn't quite the same as mandatory. But yes, Classical liberals certainly still have an argument, both ideologically and practically. Assuming one subscribes to their ideology.

    It would be nice to see other metrics like reduced overall cost of healthcare

PolitiFact says healthcare spending is also at record lows, but there's no empirical evidence Obamacare is the cause.
