So why not just make them cancel their cell phones and buy insurance? One of them is more important than the other. Choices.

I wish it was cheaper than my cell phone bill.......$45 with unlimited talk/text/data.

Is the Washington Examiner some kind of Onion offshoot?

It is possible that health insurance coverage cost could be ZERO.

Better start reading about Medicaid expansion under Obamacare.

In California, you qualify for Medicaid based on income and family size. If you're eligible, you get free or low-cost care and don't need to buy a Marketplace plan.

Thanks To Obamacare, New Yorkers' Health Insurance Premiums Will Plunge 50 Percent | ThinkProgress

ObamaCare has resulted in a 50% price decrease for health insurance in New York state with similar large double digit price decreases in California and Oregon. Basically every state which has actually bothered to impliment it is now seeing big price decreases while the Republican controlled states which have been obstinate are still seeing the usual 15%-20% yearly price increases we've experienced every year for the last half century. Yes, increasing transparency and standardizing plans does indeed result in insurance companies lower prices as customers can now actually direct compare prices between different insurance companies.

Maybe we'll also get a few club med vacations coverage as part of the O.C. package "that's cheaper than a cell phone bill" - gotta keep the tourism industry alive you know.

No, they don't. You can get unlimited coverage for less than $100.

The cost does not go down. So if your cost goes down, then there are lots of taxpayers who are subsidizing your costs.

So you are a leech.
