    Fastcar, if people will only search out answers to their questions rather than listen to people like Limbaugh, commentaries on Fox News and dumbass (and your link addresses many of the issues that are commonly talked) they would actually know what is what rather than go through life in an ignorant fog. E.g., the fact that the really poor (below poverty level) don't have coverage is not because of the ACA; but instead, because the state's GOP governors and legislators refused to take money from the federal government to expand Medicaid. States that did, their below-poverty non-disabled folks have coverage. Often people are railing against something that they lack the wherefore and the whereas of the facts...but, that is okay because it gives them the vehicle to bash liberals and Democrats which apparently is more valuable to them than health care coverage for them and theirs.

    This isn't new info, it is from 2014! People just want to believe what they are told, what fits.

    I know, some won't seek beyond a 20-second sound bite.

    And that was and is the biggest problem with Obamacare.
    If people could actually use the market place like a regular marketplace site, where they could shop for the best deals, no matter what state or area, it would have been better.
    For example, you go to ebay to buy something. You are not limited to only vendors in your state.
    That's how the insurance marketplace should work.

    He'd show me the way according to him in return for my personal check

    The sale of insurance is within the jurisdiction of the states. Many would say it is a state's right issue. Some of the very people who don't want the federal government involved in what goes on in their states and want everything not itemized in the Constitution to fall within the states' purview are also some of the very same people who say that they should be able to buy insurance from wherever they please...funny, 'eh? You might can purchase a used pair of shoes from anyone who has them listed on eBay; however, you can't purchase electricity from FPL if you live in Arkansas nor can you purchase water from the city of Chicago if you live in Georgia.
