For example, I dialed in 2 adults, 3 dependent kids into Healthcare.gov for New Jersey, an expensive state. The Gold plans are $1600/month. And that's for 2017.
Meanwhile, back in the real world: The ACA is not actually that unpopular, and doesn't seem to have been a major factor in the election. Popularity is split, 45/49. That's not much different than Medicaid, which was not very popular when it first started, and is now one of the most popular government programs.
Oh, and 77% of people on ACA plans are satisfied, as are 88% of Medicaid recipients.
Now eohrn, you’re in a thread concerning the fact that republicans have no plan to replace Obamacare. If Obamacare is so bad, why cant they come up with a plan let alone a better one? Just so you know, whining about Obamacare and me doesn't address the thread topic.
Be SPECIFIC about what doesn't work in the ACA. E.g. How did it screw up:
• Guaranteed issue
• Guaranteed coverage for preventative medicine and screenings
• Medicare savings of hundreds of billions of dollars per year
• Medicare incentives
• Exchanges (note: after the initial problems, they work very well now)
• Subsidized insurance for people who can't afford it
• The Medicare expansion
• The closure of the Medicare Part D "Donut Hole"
• Allowing approval of generic biologics
• The end of lifetime care limits
• Ratepayer rebates when an insurer spends too much on administration
• Rate review (insurers must notify groups if rates go up more than 10%)
