    1. I’m on a plan purchased through Colorado’s Exchange. No tax credits, nothing. Took 70 days after enrollment and 100+ hours of calls to get my insurance active. The ACA and the exchanges made my insurance experience about a thousand times worse.

    2. I have free insurance through the Union. Kaiser. Great for everyday maintenance, more difficult for major or catastrophic issues. But did I mention free? So, we’ll take it.
