Reminds me of a girl I went to high school with.

$256/month sounds like she has employer provided health insurance.

According to the ACA, if she wants to keep her employer's health insurance plan, she can keep it.

Unless her employer stops providing health care

You mean like this, Art?

Delacrat, what makes you so sure of that? With many employers an employee doesn't have to pay that much unless MAYBE they're a smoker.

If anything, she probably had the same set up Ed Trimnell did:

I signed up with Humana, and paid a premium of $208 per month, which included dental care.

...

Since I rarely use medical services (my last doctor's visit was in 2009) this particular plan made sense for me. I was able to avoid high monthly premiums; and I had the cash to cover the $5,000 deductible, in the comparatively unlikely event that I had a health issue. More importantly, I was protected from severe financial stress (or the prospect of becoming a “burden on the system”) in the event of a true misfortune.

This is risk management 101, at the personal level. I made the decision to minimize my insurance premiums for the tradeoff of accepting the risk of spending (up to) $5,000 out-of-pocket in a given year.

Nate,

So you can come up with $5,000 to cover a deductible.

That says nothing about her circumstances.

Go troll somewhere else, delacrat, you douchebag.

You sticking by that complete bullsh**?

Of course, he does, Hube. He's a blind follower of the Narrative, after all.

No, I was quoting Ed Trimnell and the block quote just messed up. (everything after the link is in from the linked article)

But then even if I could, what does it matter? The point was that you made a statement based upon no observable fact, an unreasonable conclusion.

So Ed Trimnell can handle a $5,000 deductible.

That says nothing about her circumstances.

Congrats Delacrat. You've said something so insane, so stupid I have no reply. It's like...

Ok, a quick one act play on dealing with delacrat.

[picture of person holding up sign, "I ran 2 kilometers today"]
Delacrat: She must be from France. They use the metric system!
Random Person: Actually several countries use the metric system. See? Here's another person who said they ran 3 kilometers AND said they were from a country not-France.
Delacrat: That guy's 3k run doesn't say anything about the picture.
Random Person: ...Do you work for Microsoft?

Yes I mean that old joke about Microsoft's help deck: "Technically correct but totally useless answer." The only difference is, that the help desk can at LEAST get an answer fitting the context.
