That equates to $9,425 per year. I just bought an insurance policy for my wife and I. It costed $547 before government subsidies. My mortgage is $490.92. If someone earned $725 per month, their rent was $490.92 and their insurance was $547 they would have to put $312.92 on the credit card to survive and that's before they have eaten anything. If the person has bad credit this isn't even a possibilty. Yes, people in America live like this in 2013. Maybe not in 2007, maybe not in 2008, maybe not in 2009 but yes lots of people live this way. LOTS!

    Wake up to reality. Not everybody fills out an application and gets a job making as much money as you. It just doesn't happen. Welcome to 2013.

    People who make minimum wage will get subsidies that make the premium affordable.

    And according to your own words, you make considerably more than $725/mo. A $60/mo premium is affordable for you.

    Yes but I know people that live this way. Contrary to popular belief these people would be willing to take a job making $50,000 per year. They just haven't got a job offer for that much money yet.

    I am well aware that I am not the only person in the world.

    What? Man, you really need to take "analogies 101", that was terrible.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Those subsidies come from taking money from other people, whose standard of living is now reduced. Punished for success to feed the guilt and greed of others.

    People fanatically and without thought believe in Jesus. People fanatically and without thought believe they should buy health insurance.

    I know a lady that makes $13,000 a year. She has no significant assets and spends $350 a month to protect those assets in the event of an expensive medical emergency.

    I also know a deca-millionaire that has well....... tens of millions of dollars. He spends $350 a month to protect those assets in the event of an expensive medical emergency.

    Would you like to guess why that lady buys health insurance? Answer: Because it's the responsible thing to do.

    Would you like to guess why that decamillionaire buys health insurance? Answer: To protect his assets from loss.

    Health Insurance is a religion. You don't pay $350 a month to protect $500 in assets. That's completely retarded.

    She is 52 years old. Who is going to give her $142,800 back? At least she protected her couch from repossession from the hospital.

    What $142,800 are you babbling about?

    The money she chose to spend? Are you saying that the govt should have protected her from making bad decisions?

    What an ironic position for a "conservative" to take!

    No. I'm saying that Health Insurance is the #1 Religion in America. I have been saying that and I still believe it.

    Now we have a state religion of Health Insurance Worship. Plato's Republic will be realized in 2014. It's a major success for elitist liberals that has been thousands of years in the making.
