    Buying ANY 'affordable' insurance sucks. Ask a Canadian. Or a Brit. Or a German. Or...

    I don't care what Coburn's motives are. They are blatant. He ain't on my side--he's in the way. But he is RIGHT THIS TIME, at least, in this distillation of his critique of the ACA.

    I don't know anyone who the ACA helps, and I'm glad it DOES help someone. But it sure as fuck ain't helping me...not with my co-pays and deductibles I have with a supposedly gold-standard public education employee's health care plan.

      though I still have family back in Canada.

      The "affordable" health care works fine.  My mother had knee replacement surgery(both knees).  Her only out of pocket(which was covered by supplemental insurance was the semi-private room@200/day)

      My Dad needed a CT scan, he did have to wait three weeks for it. That was only because they were traveling in the intervening two weeks.
