For my family, 'Affordable Health Care' is misnomer

October 08, 2013 12:00 am

I support the Republicans in Congress. The president sold Obamacare on lies, but the truth about it was uncovered.

More than 300 companies have already gone on record and have said the reason people are losing their company health insurance is the ACA.

Congress passed this law without reading it. "We need to pass it to know what's in it." Then businesses found out what was in it. They were granted a delay.

The Democrats admit this law is not ready. They use words like "train wreck."

This law is causing premiums to skyrocket as well. The name "Affordable Health Care" is a misnomer. Has anybody gone on the website and seen what this affordable care really will cost them? I have. The premium to buy a Silver Plan for my family is almost $1,000 a month with a $5,000 deductible. That's $17,000 out of my pocket before my insurance would even start to pay anything towards treatment.
