    would you be willing to obtain insurance from an entity whose only purpose was promoting healthcare, and not lining the pockets of its CEOs?
    Though I would still prefer that my taxes or payments or whatever would actually go to providing actual care to actual people, which ACA does not do no matter who has the policy.  Catastrophic health insurance is great (at least for the minority of people in the US who actually HAVE homes and cars and 401k's and such to lose), but it doesn't provide doctor care to people who need it.

    My situation with regards to ACA is a bit unique, since my income has quadrupled in the past four years, so I have gone in one fell swoop from being poor and qualifying for full subsidies under ACA (which, I discovered quickly, would still not allow me to afford to see a doctor when I needed one, since the only policies available with the subsidy were high-deductible shit policies) to being NOT poor and not qualifying for any subsidy at all (making ACA for me a simple catastrophic health insurance policy, which I don't need since I have no house or car or 401k to protect). I've now seen ACA from both ends, and not been happy with either view.
