Response to Politicub (Reply #15)

22. That's not quite true

Analyses of the subsidies show that there are millions of people who will either make too much to qualify for the subsidy but will still be extremely hard-pressed to afford premiums *and* copays etc -or- who will qualify for subsidies but will still find the premiums and copays prohibitively expensive. This is a simple truth.

There is no 'universal' to this health care. The pre-existing conditions piece of this legislature is vital, but it by no means creates universal access to health care to all Americans.

I have not and will not imply that 'poor people' are 'clueless' about this or anything else. Please don't assign that classist agenda to me, thanks.
