A comment on a WaPo article:

[quote] From a liberal Democrat: Some insurance is better than no insurance. Many rural Americans are finding their new premiums unaffordable and will become uninsured. If the number of people being hurt by the ACA due to losing their insurance is as small as claimed by the Administration and prominent Democrats, either fix the rural vs urban difference or simply let us keep our old insurance policies. The premium for the same bronze policy I'm being offered in rural Colorado (zip code 81321) for $1,023 costs $642 in Denver (zip code 80201) My former policy $399 has been canceled. The new policy represents a $633 monthly increase with no subsidy. The new policy would be 15+% of my gross income. With other financial obligations, where is this $633 to come from? Congress needs to level premiums by eliminating the regions and having state wide plans with one set of premiums for all. Or, simply let us keep our existing policies. [quote]

Since the commenter self-identifies as a librul, my only response can be, "Suck it up, sucka."
