Trump's move will lead to higher premiums for middle class consumers he's vowed to protect I buy healthcare through the Affordable Care Act Market. I supported it when Obama was president. For just $150 per month I'm receiving catastrophic healthcare insurance. I'm a very healthy person so this is the right policy for me. I don't mind the risk that I could someday be stuck with a high deductible payment for a doctor's visit. Recently I've begun hearing commentators on the news say that people like me are one of the reasons the ACA is failing -- because we're buying basic coverage instead of some ridiculous, expensive comprehensive plans that we don't need. I'm buying what's right for me because the US is a free market nation! Now Trump is trying to stop the Fed from supporting the insurance companies that are participating in the ACA marketplace. I'm not a health insurance expert so I have no clue what any of this means. All I know is that the insurance companies seem to be hellbent on raising their rates and the politicians seem to be only too glad to keep, and probably raise significantly, the personal mandate penalty for people who don't buy insurance. I am now convinced that instead of having millions of people who cannot afford health insurance, we're going to soon end up with millions of people who cannot afford health insurance and who cannot afford the personal mandate penalty. The politicians have only made things much worse!
