Perhaps the best promotion of Obamacare's virtues comes from The New Yorker's John Cassidy, who notes that "a family of four in Sacramento, California, with two thirty-five-year-old adults" who together earn $50,000 annually would pay, under the ACA's Covered California Exchange, $208.00 a month for a "silver level" plan.
What would this family pay each month for a comparable policy under the Republican plan?
$1,188, for there would be no monthly federal subsidy to the tune of $980, for there would be no Obamacare. Indeed the family's premiums would probably be far higher than even $1,188 a month, for without Obamacare's spreading of risk, the GOP's rock-bottom rate of $1,188 wouldn't be feasible.
Thus for that Sacramento family of four, there would, realistically, be no health insurance. Period.
