    under Obamacare are having it WORSE than that now, or WILL have it worse if they suddenly get a diagnosis of a chronic disease, then lose the job that provided what little insurance they have, because they cannot replace it.

    There is the COBRA option which has been around since the 1980's or 1990's, but it is called COBRA for a reason: it BITES!  If you get another job with a health plan within 90 days, the COBRA may not cost anything; but if you need more time, you have to pay the "retainer" premium, even if you don't need health care during the meantime, in order to get the pre-existing condition waived on your new job's insurance.  Basically you have to "insure" your right to get insurance!  This is worse than the worst case under Obamacare.
