ACA Signing Off.
UPDATE: This comment (from a cross-post over at dKos) is exactly what I'm talking about:
Yeah, I don’t know what to do. I filled out the first part of the application last week. I guess I’ll finish the process. But what’s the point if it’s going to be repealed “Day One”?
I made a commitment to keep this site up and running through next spring, and I intend on keeping this commitment. Beyond that, I have no idea what my plans for the site are.
After yesterday's atrocity, however...I'm honestly dreading the thought of what most of my charts, graphs, spreadsheets and blog entries are going to look like.
You see those impressive-looking odometer-style numbers at the top of the home page? Yeah, forget about those. They're meaningless now.
A lot of people will still sign up, but I'm guessing many who were planning on doing so once they were certain the ACA would still be around next year are now going to take a pass. And that's simply the beginning.
Beyond that...it's 4:30am. I'm exhausted, my stomach hurts and my hands are shaking.
God help us all.
Oh, I whipped up a quick visualization of how Trump being elected will likely impact the 2017 ACA Exchange Enrollment Graph:
