Re: “Death Spiral

"however, economic necessity will keep that noble effort out of reach of thousands in the minimum-wage work force. Their premiums will skyrocket while their pay and hours diminish as employers seek to comply with requirements of the act or to avoid them altogether."

This is lazy writing at best.

Without even considering possible medicaid qualifications, an individual making $16,000 / year (minimum wage-ish) with no other family members will receive subsidies that cover over 75% of the insurance bill for an individual purchasing insurance on the insurance exchange, resulting in a final cost to the insured of something around $550/yr. Much lower than current market costs. This is all pretty easily researched for anyone who is actually looking for this sort of information. here's one tool - i encourage you to do your own research. http://kff.org/interactive/subsidy-calculator/
