20. Your marketing brochure for the ACA in that thread contains some bogus information.

1) Even if someone already HAS Health Insurance from their employer,
they are most probably STILL buying it from a For Profit Health Insurance Corporation.
Some very large Corporations with a large risk pool DO operate their own in-house Insurance Company,
but those usually make money, and none are break even.

So, YES, it is absolutely TRUE that the ACA MANDATES by LAW that every American MUST buy
health Insurance from a For Profit Corporation.

2)The Medicaid Expansion to 133% of the poverty line WAS STRUCK DOWN by the Supreme Court.
Mercifully, the Supreme Court DID say that States could do this on their own if they are so inclined.
Most of the Governors that have spoken up since the Medicaid mandate was struck down say they probably will NOT go with the medicaid expansion.

There are other errors in your cut & paste marketing post,
but I honestly am not inclined to rebut it in depth at this point.
The very first two were shown to have gaping holes in them that I addressed above.

Cheers.
