    ...can't be trusted to buy something as complicated as health insurance. They get screwed.

    Obviously for $54 a month this woman probably has health insurance that only kicks in when she's bankrupt and/or struck by a meteor.

    She'd be better off spending that $54 a month on a gym membership, I'd bet.

      helps make a product understandable to the public, then it is taking away freedom of choice from a citizen.

      What it really means is that Republicans can't exploit a citizen as well if they understand what they are purchasing.

      The bottom line is that if someone is a Republican they want to swindle you.

      Oh they can be the most friendly and nice person when they put on their churchy self, but in reality it means you're most certainly gonna be subject to a swindle.

      I watched the Greta video, and it seems pretty clear that it is just $50 toward a doctor visit and $15 toward a prescription.

      I don't think she is stupid. Do you remember how insurance companies worked, and what their written documents were like, before they were forced to clean up their act? She said that the documents would say "refer to [something else]" but the something else was never easy to find. She was confused. A lot.

      I think she probably did the best she could to find some coverage she could afford back years ago when she signed up.

      Her mistake now is that she hadn't realized that the marketplace might have all the answers she needs.
