Quotes-start.png Over the weekend, The New York Times reported on the staggering cost of premiums for people who fall just short of qualifying for subsidies because their income is slightly too high. In more than 170 counties around the country, a 50-year-old making $50,000 a year — just above the qualifying limit for subsidy assistance — "would find the cheapest available plan to be unaffordable," the newspaper reported. In some places, prices can quickly approach 20 percent of a person's income — double what experts consider affordable health care. Quotes-end.png
