When it comes to ACA I am trying to find a simple way of explaining the following consequences of comparative advantage.

States differ in care giver compensation rates

States differ in both premium and subsidy rates

Therefore there will be both medicaid/medicare and caregiver migration.

I thought it blindingly obvious that

A) patient to caregiver ratios would tilt.

B) waiting line deaths would tilt.

Since I try to avoid talking down to people I did not point out A & B. I found out that this confused or caused disbelief in some posters. Is there a simpler way of making this point?

Your own in-laws can get compensated for acting as a care giver.

I do not see it. You placed it down pretty simply.

In other words I am just hitting denial?

Yeah and Obama is trying to spend money that congress has not authorized to keep ACA alive. He may not get that money either.
