1. I supported Obamacare but I got screwed.

I know it helped many people including friends of mine. But my policy was cancelled. I'm in CA which decided NOT to let people keep their plans another year.

I can't qualify for subsidies and couldn't afford anything in the Obamacare because my income was a bit too high. So I'm stuck paying over $100 more a month for a lousy policy with a much higher deductible and higher copays with a company with terrible reviews,, and when they are forced to be ACA compliant in January the rates get jacked up another 5%. I already had my rates TRIPLED to get any coverage at all last year, so this is horrible. I can't afford it, but can't afford no coverage either. I'm 55 and wish they'd just let me go on Medicare early. This is terrible.

I should add I was on Aetna with a great plan. They pulled out of CA due to Obamacare. Then I was on Blue Shield, a better policy at slightly more. They cancelled me with no notice, too this month and I'm stuck now with CIGNA which had bad reviews. I have no other options. I am paying $550 or so a month now for ONE PERSON and it goes up 5% more in January.

How is this "reform?"??????? I head a nonprofit, earned only $8,000 a year last year but becaause of my husband's income I cna't qualify for anything. His income goes 100% for our mortgage, 2 car payments, utilities, food, property taxes, insurance for homes and cars, and virtually nothing else. We're in CA where cost of living is high, hihgest utilities in the nation. Damn, this is NOT what I voted for!
