"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure" - 2006 Senator Obama...leadership failure indeed!
No, it's not a one size fits all mandate. It's just that some types of coverage are required. There are many things which are not required.This is now illegal per ACA as we have a 'one size fits all' mandate. While my argument is that this arrangement is neither practical or economical/efficient and yours being such will evenly spread ALL risk to ALL involved the outcome, success or failure, will not be seen for some time...
And the math of insurance (ie actuarial science) shows that insurance works better, and is more practical, when the pools are larger and cover a greater range of risks (in this case, medical conditions)
As far as success or failure, time will tell. Anyone who says they are certain about the results is either lying to you, or lying to themselves
Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.
so it is very misleading and disingenuous to say they are getting a plan for 50 dollars they are not they are getting a tax rebate at the end of the year equal to it being a 50 dollar a month plan but still required to pay the full price till then
The ACA is all about letting major corporations and large property owners off-the-hook for healthcare for their employees and for the indigent. The entire debate is a massive off-point lie.
Understanding the ACA Subsidies
Most consumers receiving premium subsidies will receive it in the form of an advanced tax credit, with the subsidy applied directly to the cost of their insurance. - See more at: Understanding the ACA Subsidies
I am self employed, have a catastropic plan -it's AARP "supplemental insurance" . High co-pay, and a hospitalization dedutable of about $8k.
I'm heathy for my age *knock on wood*, in that i work out virtually every day, and don't use any drugs, not even alcohol. or cigs.
I am a bit overweight -always have been, but have never been hospitalized. In short the plan allows me ACCESS to hospitalization if I need it without being bankrupted.
I do get a blood test every 6 months to a year, and refills on my thyroid med.
I pay very little each month -remeber I am self employed (sales independent contractor), so I also have to pay ALL of my FICA witholdings.
I'm fine with what I have. I do not need maternity, nor mental health -yet I am pretty sure this is not going to be 'acceptable' under Obamacare.
Why so?? The benefits of the policy match my needs, and I am not going to run up huge bills i cannot pay off.
Leave me alone Mr. Obama.

I do take the idea though that Medicare is through the Feds -i'd be more then happy to go with Single Payer, as it streamlines administrative costs/profits.
I'm good with means testing too

As the name suggests, supplemental insurance works in combination with other insurance. It's not designed to stand on its own or provide basic, primary health coverage - and it's not for everyone. Supplemental health insurance is often a good option for the self-employed, families with children, those financially unprepared to handle large medical bills or time off from work due to illness or injury, and those on Medicare.
You're doing insurance wrong, and the ACA wants to help that.
