RE: The Affordable Care Act

This post absolutely cannot be signal-boosted enough.

Oh hey look: "Because of some relatively minor and now-over health problems when I was in high school, under the pre-Affordable Care Act situation, I could never get private insurance in the US after I got out of college. During that period, I only really went to the doctor while I was living overseas. (Given my relative engagement with American and disengagement with Japanese politics, the cognitive dissonance of knowing that Japan has, for the past few years, had a much stronger vested interest in my health than the US has been odd.)"

Yup. My experience exactly.
