The pooch has been screwed

I wish that I would have been right about the ACA, because it would have been better than what's happening now, the ACA is arguably one of the worst laws passed in modern times in this country.

Ok. That whole "affordable" part had me confused. Since the cheapest plan they offer for me is over THREE times more than the coverage I had at my last job. Not exaggerating.

A couple of questions, were you among one of the 6,000,000 people who had there insurance policies canceled because of the ACA?, and are your deductibles also higher?

I'm a huge fan as I get to stay on my dad's insurance for a bit longer. Allowed me to buy a house and truck.

I lost my insurance when I left my last job and cannot afford any of the "Affordable care Act" policies as they are all +3x what I was paying at my old job. I went to the doctor Friday for a strained deltoid muscle in my right shoulder. $125 for the visit plus $30 for the x-ray. Still only 1/3 of one month's premiums under our King's policies.
