Report on pitfalls of health care law

Success - Article sent! close

I do not understand why no newspapers or reporters have addressed an issue that will affect all low-income people with regard to the ACA. The "credit" given for insurance under the Bronze Plan allocates roughly $450 monthly toward health care. What nobody wants to divulge is that this amount will be taxed as income the following year or, in my case, $5,400. And only a few reporters have touched on the high deductible ($6,000 in my case) before insurance actually kicks in.

Everyone is not insured even though he or she may have a policy, since low-income people cannot meet a deductible that is more than half their yearly income. Be honest and tell the facts!
