    My mistake: I cannot read your mind; only the words you use to express yourself.

    FOR ALL PEOPLE IN THE USA: private healthcare insurance covers more people than public healthcare programs.

    FOR THOSE ENROLLED SINCE 2014 UNDER THE ACA: in many states, more people were enrolled in Medicaid than in private insurance programs.  

    I have made no claim that Medicaid is a marginal program; only that more people have a private for-profit insurance than have access to health care paid by the tax-payers.  

    I myself am willing to continue a slavish attention to the facts: doing so requires me to point out that the democratic party has devoted itself to for-profit healthcare insurance as the healthcare system for the country.  While the ACA has increased the number of people receiving Medicaid, the primary goal of the act is to have Americans receiving their healthcare through a private for-profit insurance program.

      are in a thrall to profit.  

      As long as that is true, well, there is no reason to think fundamental change will happen.
