    WASHINGTON — The No. 1 question about President Barack Obama’s health care law is whether consumers will be able to afford the coverage. Now the answer is coming in.
    The biggest study yet of premiums posted by states finds that the sticker price for a 21-year-old buying a mid-range policy will average about $270 a month. That’s before government tax credits that act like a discount for most people, bringing down the cost based on their income.
    List-price premiums for a 40-year-old buying a mid-range plan will average close to $330, the study by Avalere Health found. For a 60-year-old, they were nearly double that at $615 a month.

    What I would like to know for the people who are going to pay the above quoted premiums.

    When the 21, 40 and 60 year olds are told this is how much they will pay OR ELSE,
    Is that amount to include their mate or their family members ?
    Or is it per person of that age?

    If its going to be per person, NO matter how much of a discount the people are told they will be able to take advantage of.
    It is still going to cause a BIG HURT on the tax payers/the Worker Bees of the country.
    And all to bring medical care to a lot of people who have always had their care paid for by he public anyway including some who were and are illegal.

    I don't think this medical care idea which is really the old Hillary Clinton plan just carried over into obamacare, is ever going to benefit any except those who have always been able to benefit off of the workers of the country.
