But I believe it does indicate
the desire for health care insurance. People are desperate for coverage. Millions of people are desperate. And the ACA is just the way to get it. Maybe it isn't the best way, that would be medicare for all. But the ACA is far better than not having any coverage at all or being denied care because you have a preexisting condition.

1. Medicare for all or a strong public option (which would eventually led to Medicare for all)
And no individual mandate.

I think the health insurers will eventually lobby to have the Medicare age lowered, so that the government gets all the most expensive profits and the insurers get nothing but money and healthy people (for the most part). And this will be more "evidence" that the private sector functions more efficiently.

But, yes, it's good that people with pre-existing conditions get covered. If the pre-existing condition is severe enough to be disabling, they are already eligible for Medicare. No one wants to be disabled, but disabled with Medicare is better than disabled without Medicare.
