TPM Reader TC on the difficulty of getting young adults to sign up for Obamacare:
Love your reporting and wanted to drop a line tonight to offer my position on the ACA.
I’m a 32 year-old healthy male that wants, but can’t afford, Obamacare. I think the law is a step in the right direction, it just doesn’t go far enough to capture my peers in large numbers.
Let me offer my situation:
I earn 55,000 a year working in a restaurant, though I have a Masters Degree. I live in Brooklyn. I earn too much to qualify for assistance with healthcare, so my premium is $308/month.
