19. Let me tell you what the ACA did for me

 

The cheapest plan I could get would have cost me over 700 dollars a month with a 7000 dollar annual deductible.

This was the bronze plan, costs went up from there and they were already out of reach with the lowest cost plan.

So then I became an outlaw of sorts for the crime of not being able to afford health insurance under the ACA and got fined by the IRS.

As of today I got some shitty insurance through work that basically keeps me from getting fined by the IRS and does little more. If I live long enough I'll get Medicare in a few years, then I'll have some actual health insurance that I can use.

The ACA has been nothing but a disaster for me and my family and I support Medicare for all 1000%!

I mean why do you think 70% of Americans support Medicare for all? Because they are happy with the ACA??

If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Undecided
