Figure your own subsidy...
I did some doodling. Decided to check out a non smoking single parent living in mid Chciago making $50,000 a year with two kids.
(which covers 25% of the overall premium)
(which equals 6.73% of your household income and covers 75% of the overall premium)
So the parent pays about $280 amonth. Okay. Now, what are the co pays???
So the co-pays and premiums are more than 20% of the parent's income.
Plus, note this:
"This means that for all enrollees in a typical population, the plan will pay for 73% of expenses in total for covered benefits, with enrollees responsible for the rest. "
If the youngsters don't sign up, then the prices in 2015 are gonna jump.
Such a bargain.
Problem is the Low Information people think it is free.
Sometimes people get what they deserve.
"Unlimited tolerance must lead to the disappearance of tolerance. If we extend unlimited tolerance even to those who are intolerant, if we are not prepared to defend a tolerant society against the onslaught of the intolerant, then the tolerant will be destroyed, and tolerance with them." - Karl Popper
“It’s the presumption that Obama knows how all these industries ought to be operating better than people who have spent their lives in those industries, and a general cockiness going back to before he was president, and the fact that he has no experience whatever in managing anything. Only someone who has never had the responsibility for managing anything could believe he could manage just about everything.” - Thomas Sowell in Reason Magazine
