In Response to Re: Obamacare: Is a $2,000 deductible 'affordable?':
Seriously folks, are you really unable to click on the links embedded in this article - or are you so "?" that you don't seem to care about the details: Here is part of what the Silver Plan will actually cost:
The least expensive silver plan for a 21-year-old could cost $216 a month, but those earning only 150% of the poverty line (or $17,235 annually) may pay only $44 after receiving federal subsidies. A 40-year-old may pay $276 a month, or $40 after the subsidies.

I don't think that people are realizing that in today's world, just one visit to the ER could end up in 5000 costs never mind the deductible.
What they are saying is really good especially because many of those families will receive a subsidy to pay for their plans. And if we have the intelligent Republicans that will allow the Medicaid expansion then anything will be a lot better than what we have today.
Still, I think that the total solution to any of this problem will eventually be a Single payer option.
