    most from ACA: the currently uninsured or those insured in the individual market. Many people are still getting health insurance through their employer, and the costs of that are hidden from them: firstly because it's just deducted from their paycheck, and secondly because the employer is subsidizing it, typically. And they don't see the pre-existing condition problem, either.

    But if you've ever been in the individual insurance market, then you know just how bad it can be when it's just you and not a big employer talking to the insurance company. Those people are not going to want to go back to the pre-ACA state of affairs. But would a GOP Congress and President listen to and protect that segment of the population? So far the evidence is that they wouldn't.
