U.S. Uninsured Rate Continues to Fall
Medicaid for all would drop it to 0% uninsured, but your own chart shows that the uninsured levels are still higher than when ACA was passed, which is pretty bad considering all of the new medicaid patients who signed up.

That's pretty messed up of you. I don't laugh when anyone loses their coverage, even when righties lose it I don't think it's funny, but to each his own.
Isnt that what Democrats did when they called everyones policies who got cancelled "junk", and then laughed at them for having them, while then suggesting they were lying for having them cancelled?

So is filling out a 65 page form - twice - and still not even knowing if you're covered three months later "easy" or not, for an average 18 year old who's never filled out anything more complex than a selective service registration? And this time don't dodge the question.
i FILLED OUT THE FORM AS WELL AND WAS NO BIG DEAL. You have to follow through and track that it gets done.

No, but the premiums, co-pays and deductibles went way up thanks to the ACA. Thank you Democrats, I needed to spend more money anyway.

Good luck at the public clinics. Remember those signs in doctor offices that say they don't accept Medicare. Yep, that's you now. Way to go, champ.

Take it from someone in the hospitals and clinics each and every day. You are screwed. Hope you voted conservative and not progressive so I can have some sympathy. Otherwise.....have fun.

The bronze plan would bankrupt most people too before getting full treatment and it would cost more. Let's be real.

Public clinics - Medicare? I think you mean Medicaid. And most docs take Medicare. Only one of our local docs that could, does not.

With high deductible plans in relatively poor people, they will not go BK. What will happen with a very major hospital bill, is that the hospital will end up eating the patient's deductible. If the bill is $100K and the patient has a $10K deductible that they cannot meet, the hospital will be quite glad to accept the $90K. Vs next to nothing if the patient was uninsured. Sure they might pursue the patient's $10K, but it will be a relatively soft pursuit.
