    Apparently, I’m in the minority.

    I had zero trouble signing up for a new healthcare plan. The premiums are about the same amount that I was paying through my employer, a temp agency, whose plans didn’t fulfill the requirements of the ACA. Plus, I found a plan that lets me go back to the doctors I had previous to my period of unemployment.

      Not news

      The Affordable Care Act and its Minnesota version, MNSURE will help many, many people obtain affordable health insurance. But it’s not news that those individuals had no trouble finding plans that worked for them.

      The ACA is in my mind only a step toward a complete single payer system or universal health care. But it’s at least step in the right direction. I hope before this election year is done we’ll hear from the Democratic candidates about this fact and how much the Republican party and its right wing base have done to sabotage any reform.
