    Not just conclusory statements?

    Like how much money you will save over what you pay now?  What extra benefits you will receive?  Etc.

    People will not credit your diary without numerical proof.

    Thanks.

      I'm not going to give you private information nor do I care about numbers.  

      What I will say is that I am getting a silver policy for A LOT LESS MONEY than I am currently paying from the same company I already have with a much lower deductible.  

      Also, regarding the subsidy/tax credit.   You can use it all towards payment or some of it towards payment or none of it towards payment.  If you use none of it towards payment or some of it towards payment, you will still receive it when you file your income tax in the form of paying less taxes or a bigger refund.  

      So if  you lie about your income to get a big credit, you will get caught when you file.  And if you receive the subsidy, irregardless of your income, YOU HAVE TO FILE BY LAW!

          This is my diary and I am just relating my experience.  There is no argument.

          You want numbers, go and see for yourself.  

          I am saving over $300 a month and getting a better policy with the same company.  

          I'm doing a happy dance and I don't care about your argument.  LOL.

            because it contradicts the "everyone is going to be paying much higher premiums and getting worse coverage" mantra that the GOPers are trying to sell.

            The ACA is not the perfect answer for everyone. It was never intended to be. It is giving many of us much, much better options than we had without the ACA.

            •  It was intended to equalize the system (0+ / 0-)

              so that everyone could afford healthcare.  That is all anyone without health care ever asked for.  This certainly does the trick.  

              It's up to us to let people know the truth because the media is sure as hell not doing it.
