    Take maternity care, of instance.  It may seem the most logical thing in the world that you shouldn't pay for it if you don't need it, but it's kind of arbitrary to single it out for a la carte treatment.  Should Whites be able to opt out of sickle cell coverage, or gentiles from Tay-Sachs coverage?  Everyone pays school taxes even though you don't have kids or they're past K-12 school age.

    Your insurance company could have chosen to tinker with its coverage to make it ACA-compliant but it chose not to do that.  If it would have had to do more than tinker, then it's not clear in what sense it was good coverage for you, except to the extent that you hadn't yet experienced its shortcomings.

    You know, I sometimes think if I could see, I'd be kicking a lot of ass. -Stevie Wonder at the Glastonbury Festival, 2010
