    Individual health exchange market?

    I'm talking here about the policy itself actually, not the SCOTUS decision. There are so many posts in this thread of people criticizing the ACA who clearly don't even understand what it does. Some criticize it for doing things it doesn't actually do.

    And it may not be "great" to you...but to someone like me? An extra 7k per year means alot.

    May a health care tragedy never befall your family but if it does a mere 7k will not even make a drop in the rain bucket when a loved is in the thick of it.

    I never wanted to be dependent on anyone. Imagine that....someone that wants to be responsible for their own life instead of being dependent on others.

    Hell, $7k won't cover one night in the hospital.
    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    Yes. Anyone earning less than 133% of the poverty line will get free Medicaid, and anyone earning 133% to 400% of the poverty line will get subsidized insurance on a health insurance exchange.

    I never wanted to have some one else's heart. Especially if they had to die. However that is most likely in my future.
