Toni, We affirm what you are saying. For someone in your situation, it is very difficult to get truly affordable health care. Your $2,000 a month rent is a very real expense, which makes it difficult for you to afford the premiums you are being offered by Anthem Blue Cross, Blue Shield, Kaiser Permanente, etc. And, due to the fact that your rent is not tax-deductible, your eligibility for a subsidy would be based on your $50,000 income, which makes you ineligible (assuming you are a single with no dependents). The system is flawed. There are many with lower incomes than you that are being helped by the Affordable Care Act, but we understand that it is difficult to rejoice in that when you are one of the ones who is not being helped by it.
