Affordable Care Act isn’t affordable for everyone

-A A +A

To the editor:
The Affordable Care Act has just hit home for my wife.
How they could possibly name it “affordable” is beyond us.
Her monthly premium for identical coverage has jumped from $361 with a $2,500 deductible to $767 with a $2,400 deductible.
I suppose the extra $4,872 yearly will fund many of the people who will receive subsidies, but at age 59, she will now have maternity and pediatric care, which we surely will need.
President Obama promised change, and boy did we get it.
