I don't like the proposed replacement but the ACA is in sad shape. Has no one noticed that insurers are leaving the exchanges and that premiums are ridiculously high? I work with a nurse who retired and then came back part time. The monthly premium for her and her husband is $750 each. The pension program gives a stipend of $150 for insurance so that brings it down a little but it's still on par with a house payment.

Granted, low income people who purchase through state exchanges get subsidized rates but that won't matter when there are no insurers willing to participate in the state exchanges. We are getting closer to that situation each year.

ACA exchanges grow thinner with Aetna leaving for 2�18

Quite likely. Then, enter single payer.

It seems that the Senate is working on a health care bill behind closed doors, and aren't even holding hearings on it. Did you all see Senator Claire McCaskill tear into Orrin Hatch last week?

What are they trying to hide?

Is anyone making contingency plans for what they are going to do if and they lose their insurance?
