Actually I didn't know that.
The reason why you're not aware of that is because the political party you follow and believe in has an agenda to destroy the ACA. So the counties in Iowa, and Ohio, and Nevada, and elsewhere that are currently under represented or not represented at all by ACA exchanges are what they constantly talk about to try and shape opinion (yours) that it's in a "death spiral", "collapsed", "imploded". Republicans like 45, McConnell, or Ryan never mention that the ACA is working just fine in California, up and down the west coast, Massachusetts, New York, the eastern seaboard, and mostly around the rest of the country but for the few areas the Republican propaganda machine harps on in its memes on the Obamacare disaster. Of course they're focusing on that aspect, they're pushing an agenda.
Just like the Democrats have an agenda to protect the law they crafted. So from them you hear how vibrant and what a blessing to the country the ACA has been. And like me, they might be inclined to minimize the problem areas that the Republicans are inclined to emphasize, because everybody pushes the agenda that supports their belief and interests. But you may have noticed, maybe not on Fox, that most of the Democrat Senators and Reps have publicly admitted that Obamacare/ACA has problems that need to be addressed legislatively. They don't insist that Obamacare is rolling along like 45 imaginatively describes his "fine-tuned" White House administration. They admit it needs bi-partisan action to solve its flaws and smooth off the rough edges and problems that have arisen in the seven years of its existence. The only Republicans I see calling for a bi-partisan approach to fixing health care are John McCain and Lindsay Graham. With the rest it's the same old, same old bullsh!t song and dance about the death spiral of the ACA. Which can easily be researched as to its validity or veracity by seeking non-partisan studies and assessments apart from and outside the Republican/corporatist manifesto. Two references I suggest you consider by searching the question, " is the ACA in a death spiral?" are links to articles in the Washington Times, a conservative right leaning publication, and Forbes magazine, not known as a bastion of left wing bias. The findings might surprise you.
