    Nevertheless... ACA is yet another goobermunt slam dunk “like it or take the lumps” program.

    Gentlemen, here's THE point. If the ACA was so bad, why haven't the republicans come up with a better, more inclusive, better access plan? If it's so bad, why has states expanded Medicaid which in many ways is an expanded product of the ACA.

    My wife’s premiums have stayed the same as last year. My premiums went up 6%. Now I’ll have to pay $150/ every two weeks. BCBS and no deductible. I can live with this.

    The government has no place in healthcare. The republicans don’t need to come up with a better, more inclusive, better access plan. They need to repeal ACA.

    Health care is a privilege, not a right.

    The article read But 600,000 Just Enrolled. Why not 463,140 out of 600,000 reenrolled or 463,140 renewed? Or 136,860 just enrolled? I haven't had to enroll each year to continue with the coverage that I currently have.

    Oh that's right - the article is trying to make a point that Trump failed to suppress Obamacare and 600,000 just enrolled makes a better headline than 136,860 just enrolled...

    Congrats. Wish mine was more in line with that! If I might ask though, do you guys use health insurance enough to justify both of you having separate plans? None of my business, just wondering. When the wifey and I married, we dropped hers to have some extra walking around money.

    We use my plan. My plan is still cheaper and better overall than hers.

    No deductible, that's nice. Any annual out of pocket max?

    Hmmm, sounds like your legislator must not be representing you very well!

    I live in California. Of course my legislator doesn't represent a white middle class male.
