That’s one hell of a long story,
but what I thought was key was they both supported Obamacare because they wanted to quit their jobs where they had insurance coverage and pursue new careers, and that having ACA Obamacare would give them the safety net to do it.
Then they tell the nightmare story that resulted,
In 2009, at the height of the O'Care debate, we traveled to Santa Cruz, California. The "hippy" atmosphere was a bit of a turnoff for me - too many people accepting menial work, so they can be free to live the "good life". At restaurants, shops, tourist traps - we were waited on by kids (not all young) who looked like they should be beyond the waitress/waiter/store clerk stage in their careers. I felt like most of them were probably college grads who just didn't want to enter the 9 to 5 work world. That's their choice, no skin off my back.
On the third day, a Tuesday, we drove to a park, high above a favorite surfing spot. It was about 11:00 in the morning. We watched dozens of surfers, doing their thing, taking occasional breaks from the surf to sit on the cliffs and smoke a joint/drink a beer. Their ages seemed to range from the twenties to the fifties. I was a little surprised that so many "adults" could afford to be at the beach in the middle of the day. Then it hit me. They choose to wait tables at night so they can surf all day. AND, since they earn so little, WE WOULD SOON BE BUYING THEM HEALTH INSURANCE!
The one thing that used to keep people in the work world was health insurance. Obamacare has remedied that (as if it was some kind of curse). Now, they don't have to worry. If they don't work hard or choose to work in a menial job, they will have free health insurance, thanks to those who do work hard at tough jobs!

What struck me, beyond your observation, was these are prime demographic bot supporters for whom nothing is working as promised, yet the writer still wants to see it succeed.
Note that the passive *husband* is eligible for Medicaid, where his meds will be provided, but they don’t want that.
Note also, many gays married in order for one to be eligible for the others health insurance policy, but now, there are fewer and fewer policies which provide spousal coverage. As employers have to change their offerings, even without the employer mandate, fewer and fewer will be able to offer spousal coverage or family coverage options.
In every one of these articles, the victims of zer0care state their implicit belief in the *idea* and reassert their passionate support for the Democrat Party.
“...because they wanted to quit...”
Exactly. Remember what Nancy said...?
“(CNSNews.com) House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Thursday that Obamacare facilitates the type of liberation that the Founders had in mind because it allows you to quit your job and become a photographer, a writer, a musician—or whatever.
