Go read it again. If they cancelled your plan it sucked and you were getting screwed. Check the new coverage and rates you can get. Btw cobra is not an insurance company and Aetna has plans under the ACA.
Have you looked into this at all or is your rant just a knee jerk reaction caused by the right wing media?
You know what causes me to have a "knee jerk reaction"? When a poster tries to turn a thread into a right wing / left wing argument. All sides are getting screwed by this. If you think you're not, then bully for you. But don't spin that turd here. Very few people are benefitting from this new "Affordable" Care Act.
if you make under $50k (73% of income earners in the US) you will receive a net subsidy
The Affordable Care Act provides a new tax credit to help you afford health coverage purchased through the Marketplace. Advance payments of the tax credit can be used right away to lower your monthly premium costs. If you qualify, you may choose how much advance credit payments to apply to your premiums each month, up to a maximum amount. If the amount of advance credit payments you get for the year is less than the tax credit you're due, you’ll get the difference as a refundable credit when you file your federal income tax return. If your advance payments for the year are more than the amount of your credit, you must repay the excess advance payments with your tax return.

Are you sure that figure is correct? What school is this! My daughter pays $20 per month for her school insurance through UCLA.
