This is what happens when GOPers de-fund remedial reading classes to pay for Uberrich tax scams - comprehension disappears among the affected group - mostly GOPer-dupes who vote for such policies in their States.
t. Fascists throughout history have used this method of "uniting" their dupes, and the GOP has become Masters of the Craft.

OH, stop with the intelligence jab - your're smarter than that.
It has nothing to do with lazy - it has to do with the was the ACA is designed to give subsidies.
If somebody wants to retire early and needs health care coverage to make that happen, there has got to be a better way than ACA subsidized premiums which limits their income earning ability. What if they need / want / choose to make more income - this subsidy makes it even harder for them to do this.]
I said why not let them buy into early Medicare?

The short answer to your question is "Because GOPers refuse to consider single payer" which is what we'd have if everyone could "buy in" to Medicare, a "single payer system"..
You say "there must be a better way than ACA subsidized premiums" - what might that be?
How exactly does the subsidy make it harder to earn more money then they were getting from the job they quit? What circumstance can you concoct where the decision to "withhold your labor" because you now have an alternative source of health care would prevent you from seeking a better job IF YOU WANTED ONE?
You are grasping at the slenderest of straws to justify GOPer opposition to ACA. A worker takes early retirement or stays home to raise their kids and this is a bad thing because....what??? they might not want to get a better paying job and lose the subsidy? If money was an issue, they wouldn't quit in the first place. If it's not an issue, your concern is baseless.
