Supposedly, one of the main purposes behind Obamacare was to provide affordable health care coverage for every American family.
Since the passage of Obamacare, healthcare costs have climbed higher than they have ever been. More and more employers are reducing the amount and type of coverage they provide to their employees while increasing how much the employees pay.
Deductibles are getting so high that many families can’t reach the limit and have to pay everything out of pocket. And then Obamacare mandated that every American WILL purchase health insurance or be penalized and fined by the IRS when filling out their taxes.
So Mr. President, please explain to the millions of us middle income families how we are suppose to pay for the mandated health insurance when we can barely pay the bills we have now?

It's ironic. The poor and 'disadvantaged' are who largely elected Obama, yet they are the first to have been hurt and likely will take the worst of the damage this President is dealing out to the American public. The Middle Class is sure hurting, but below that, it's state aid or starve. What a choice he's given them as a thank you for giving HIM the top job.

In Colorado we have CICP (Colorado Indigent Care Program). It's not medicaid, and it's not insurance, it is simply reduced cost healthcare. Income qualifications of course, a family of four can make $55k and still qulify, and even though I have health insurance through work, I still qualify. It reduces the amount of out-of-pocket copays and expenses. I think most states have this. Apply through your local hospital.
