Elina Cabrera: Desperate for ACA

Desperate for ACA

My husband and I are two middle-aged, unemployed people with two teenage children. We have to buy health insurance from the market at the cost of approximately $2,000 per month. We are desperately waiting for Obamacare to kick in.

Since the North Carolina Republicans are so steadfastly against Obamacare because “it will cause tremendous harm to the society,” I would like to hear from them how Obamacare will harm us or all the other people in our situation. What about the residents who do not have any medical coverage?
