    insurance they can afford.  I am hearing that they are demanding insurance that doesn't provide minimal coverage and ends up being no insurance at all.  So what is supposed to happen to those people who have crappy insurance that doesn't cover their health care?  Are they supposed to count on the rest of us to pay for it if they need it?  It sounds like you are in favor of continuing the system that is crippling our economic growth and not working for people.  Do you think it's free when someone gets health care that is not covered by insurance?  How do we deal with that?  And don't say "single Payer" because then there will be tons of people who can't keep their policies.  Or end up paying double.   What I haven't seen and think would be helpful is to see how much an ACA compliant plan would cost after subsidies compared to the out-of-pocket expenses for one of these crappy plans.  And I'd like to know how many people will be affected to the point that they can't afford insurance.  And how much their rates will go up with a compliant plan, after subsidies.  Because it seems like we could figure out a fix for that which doesn't end shifting the burden of health care to others.
