Kim Manfredi: This is affordable?

This is affordable?

I just received in the mail from Blue Cross of North Carolina a summary of my health insurance plan under the new Obamacare laws. My premiums will increase from $256.32 to $562.13 per month! I guess I must have misunderstood the “affordable” part of this act and how this is supposed to help those who currently do not have health insurance.
