lt SandySo far it has not affected me because I am on MediCal, thank goodness. No, I don’t know enough about it. I wanted it to be a really good thing, but I’m feeling like it’s not.

lt gilbertIt’s affected me—toward the end of the year I have to give some of my hard- earned money back. I get penalized by not having healthcare.
