Thanks lefties for basically nothing...
It's not "nothing" for the six million plus of us who are now covered under private insurance, nor to the many more millions who qualify for expanded Medicaid.

Yeah, this thing did not turn out as promised, not even close. And it was pretty predictable that it wouldn't from the start, which makes it all the more frustrating. It's insulting to hear people be so dismissive of those who have lost plans. That was not supposed to happen. And I don't know how anyone can stand back and support the ACA which was supposed to insure more people when it has caused many to lose coverage. It just doesn't make sense to still pretend that it's working great.

I didn't have any for 3 years. Now I have Goverment Medicare. My husband's employer insurance didn't change. The company only has 15 people. They could even not insure their employees, but they do. Since he turned 65, he now has Medicare too, but his Medicare Advantage is covered as part of his employee coverage. It actually went down from before.

No. Don't know anyone else who did either.

Signed obama....
He said that when the public option was still on the table, it is a shame Congress didn't follow through, but at least more Americans now have access to healthcare insurance than before.

Yes that is true. To have the same coverage I enjoyed my premiums tripled and my deductibles quadrupled.
