    into people's concerns,I'd say. At least I've heard about it from a couple business owners and a neighbour here in NY.

      issue between October and December, unless the White House and HHS takes the lead in fixing this.

        thats what the anti-ACA crowd wants for their scare stories.  All based on "what ifs" and "maybes".  The fact is, many states have opened exchanges and we've heard not one instance of this happening.  

        I've asked it a bunch, forgive me for repeating, but when did the smart people who read and post at DKos become so gullible to the lies from the right?

        We are all in this together.

          with right/left. What is going on is that  actual people have begun to run their numbers & the results are not as good as some thought they would be AND in some cases, there are some definite issues.(like my neighbor)
          Enough to force changes and improvements in the law? Maybe,that will depend on how many & how vocal the folks impacted are. A further complication is that what is available on the ACA varies from state to state. Pretending the ACA is perfect isn't smart politics,ime. YMMV.

            too many hands in the pie for my taste and besides, from the beginning I wanted Medicare for All.  

            If there is some specific part of it that is not fair and creates a REAL burden for a great many people, it is the function of their elected representatives to bring amendments forward.  Believe me, if what was said in this scenario was evenly remotely true, every representative out there would be hearing from his/her constituents.  

            This story is a myth.  Send me one that is factual and I will consider it, thoughtfully I might add.
