    are emblematic of an entire population.  In fact, I was using them as an example to counter the notion of other that all the pre-ACA policies that were cancelled were "junk" only people didn't know it.  My point is that I'm sure there are some like that, but there are also some people out there who had legitimate policies that served their needs who are now going to have to pay more,and it is disingenuous to pretend those kinds of situations don't exist as well.

    Supporters of the ACA point to situations were people are better off under the ACA, while the opposition points to people who are not better off. The truth is that both situations exist -- some people pay less, some people are going to have to pay more -- because the ACA was designed that way.  

    What I was saying is that the arguments presented are not going to be persuasive to those people like my California relatives.  I don't pretend that they are emblematic of the entire population, but I don't believe they are the only ones in that situation, either.
