The ACA is a law. The exchanges are tools to allow people to comply with that law. If you have insurance through your employer, you are "participating in Obamacare." Obamacare is not a health care plan. You cannot sign up for Obamacare, you might sign up/register on the exchange. I am not advocating, just clarifying because it is starting to drive me nuts that everyone is talking about signing up for Obamacare, or railing that congress doesn't have to partake in Obamacare. They do, through their exceptional employer-based coverage, "participate in Obamacare." I don't "have Obamacare," I comply with it by having health insurance, whether private or medicare. That is all, carry on.
