    WTF dude, you said that the ACA wasn't working for you, so I asked you to tell us what was bad about it, and now you run from the question. Therefore the conclusion is - you're making it up.

    you shouldn't settle on a conclusion borne entirely from ignorance.

    again, I can give you basics and generalities... but you are not entitled to detailed information about my personal affairs, nor will you be getting any.

    I never asked for any specifics. You haven't offered anything to validate your assertion. You just said that the ACA is no good for you.

    that not true at all.... why are you choosing to not tell the truth?

    I told you it had adverse effects and what they were..... then you started to demand i give you details about my health plans.

    if you had a solid grasp of what Obamacare is about, you wouldn't need any more details to know what i'm talking about.

    You're making it up as you go along.

    Not only that, but I have a daughter who just got out of grad school. Because of the ACA she is able to be on my insurance until she finds a job. That is a very great benefit for her.

    Bottom line is that, I must really thank Obama. He has actually helped me. He actually saved me $125 today!!!

    The thing is this, Obama said he wanted to do things to make a difference in the lives of middle class people like me. Man did I really feel it in my pocket. I really had not noticed it before, but Obama has made a difference! I guess this kind of thing would be meaningless to a rich person, but these things actually mean something to me.

    Way to go Barack Obama!!!!!

    I still don't take back all the bad stuff I have said about him tho!!!
    Yes, my wife and I cancelled our insurance, picked an ACA policy, with a premium $75.00 a month less, not too big a deal there, but hey. My deductible went from 10K each to 6K each and my coverage improved.
    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy

    That's good. Actually I looked and my premiums did go up at the first of the year. But we also changed providers. Although I have had insurance for years, I don't ever recall the birth control pills being free.

    Well, poll or not, I was glad to save some money. Don't recall anything the government has done that had such a direct impact on me since I got out of school.
