300,000 folks who'll likely not be in a position to afford to use that insurance due to oppressive co-pays, etc. However, these same folks can afford contending even less with the increasing schedule of fines at tax time for not signing up. It's strange kind of extortion, that. Make no mistake about, despite the failure of media to mention it prior to the election, the October ACA signup coming at the same time folks were making final decisions regarding the November 8th election did not bode well for Clinton's chances. For some time Democrats have functioned under the delusion of ACA's success and perhaps honesty, if not naively so, believed public satisfaction with the legislation would be their election ace card---whoops!, nearly wrote trump card there but...
However, ACA is in fact not a success at all but rather one more unnecessary burden imposed upon a populace struggling to survive the three and a half decades of neoliberal assault. Guessing it was considerably more than a few as yet uncommitted voters for whom the ACA sign-up proved the deal breaker.
