I’m not sure what this means, but I just re-read this to make sure it all still made sense and noticed that, somehow, I wrote this entire post without using a single comma.

So you used three in one sentence to make up for it? I like your style, sir.

"that relying on an insurance system that’s only affordable when partially subsidized by an employer leads to a situation in which chronic unemployment is tantamount to a death sentence."

True, but the ACA doesn't really change that, especially with the Medicare expansion defanged. Simply requiring people to buy overpriced, inefficient, profit-driven insurance (and throwing in a few bones to make it slightly less overpriced) doesn't equate to everyone having affordable health care.

"the fact that the impoverished and unemployed have a better chance of living a full life than they did before Obama was elected."

Unless they're undocumented immigrants or citizens of Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iraq, Somalia, Yemen, Libya, Syria, Iran... (There's some morbid humor to the fact that Obama has actually set up a literal death panel, just of a form few Republicans are willing to criticize.)
