Yes it is . . .

When premiums exceed 8% of income they are not considered "affordable" and the mandate to purchase evaporates:

""The ACA was not designed to reduce costs or, the law's name notwithstanding, to make health insurance coverage affordable for the vast majority of Americans," says health care consultant Kip Piper, a former government and insurance industry official. "The law uses taxpayer dollars to lower costs for the low-income uninsured but it also increases costs overall and shifts costs within the marketplace.""

The more we learn about it the worse it gets.

IMHO,the only good thing in the whole bill is it will prevents being dropped
for pre-existing conditions. That could of easily been handled by legislative
regulation. What's one more regulation added to the 800,000 already on the
books.

The 30 million uninsured could have easily been handled by a separate
program without sinking the best medical system in the world.
It's not about health, it's about re-distribution of wealth.

There is more surprises coming after January 1st about Obamacare....What surprises me is that the republicans never have mentioned that people can call an insurer to get their own insurence through a private insurer without signing up for Obamacare....the only people that may qualify for a subsidy may need to sign up since regular insurence companies will not provide a subsidy.

Where R Mr. McCain and the rest of the GOP????

Out to lunch, not selling their plan, or just waiting for this 100% Dem plan to
collapse under it's own weight.
