3. For years, I carried an individual insurance policy and my employer's, so that I could quit anytime.

That will no longer be necessary. Health insurance is important to me, but I also refuse to work for an asshole -- so I paid out the nose to have that freedom. Now people don't have to do that -- at least in 2014.

I don't have to worry about my company going under and having to pay COBRA for the limited amount of time it is offered.

I also believe in some of the provisions in ACA that will incentivize better integrated delivery systems, more primary care physicians, etc.

It's a big improvement. It's a start, but there is a long way to go to get a much better system. At least we have a framework to improve.
