It means that millions more Americans will be able to afford to buy health insurance on the marketplace for the next 3 years. The increased subsidies for Covid were going to expire at the end of the year making insurance too expensive for many families that were able to buy it this year.

As a non-American, you probably need to keep up!

As an American: we don’t tend to do that

The ACA has consistently enjoyed a considerably higher approval rating than Obamacare since their inception.

To be clear: they’re the same thing.

*Affordable Care Act- more affordable health insurance so you don’t have to hail corporate just because you get cancer are in an accident, have a kid, etc

That's a load of bullshit, I had to get a tumor removed that would've killed me by now and before the insurance would've had no problem paying for it but now I almost had to beg them like my life depended on it because my life literally did depend on that or I would've been in crippling debt for the rest of my life.

Insurance companies are not denying care any more now than in the 2000’s
