Our poisonous fetish with guns has now metastasized all over the world. Iraq? Now ISIS is using our equipment. Syria? Arm the rebels who then became the Islamic State also. Libya? Like lancing a boil and letting the pus spill over all of Africa, now Boko Haram is armed.

"Granted, the ACA is hard costs and much of what's been calculated here includes indirect costs."
yes, but they couldn't be more opposite - the "indirect costs" of the ACA are negative, i.e., they are savings!!! Savings from avoided treatment costs of illness, avoided lost wages, avoided lost productivity, avoided whole hosts of problems and costs. Gun violence and the threat that NRA terrorists pose to everyone is a scourge; ACA OTOH improves the quality of life of everyone.
