Obama counts someone like me as "insured," but that's really a stretch. I DO have an insurance card, though.

The ACA was never meant to benefit the middle class.

Obamacare insurance card and $10 might get you a cup of coffee after the deductible.

I'm no mathematician, but that sure seems like a LOT more than "on day one", doesn't it?

It is redistribution of wealth, a socialist program.

Agree. It was to provide benefits to the lower class, even if that meant making insurance unaffordable to the middle class.

You may want to learn about the ACA BEFORE discussing it.
No it didnít. The mandate didnít force you to buy heath insurance at all. The overwhelming majority of the non insured never bought an ACA covered policy.

Do your homework Paydro.

Nope. Simply not the case. All the insurers were private companies.

The irony with my $900-a-month plan is that I am better going to a doctor out-of-network and negotiating a cash price than using my insurance in-network and paying the "discounted" rate. Example: Physical therapy with Obamacare claim is $130 a session and the uninsured rate is $90. (At the same time, the lower-income are getting the sessions for free.)
