Most people signing up on the exchanges will qualify for subsidies based on their income and family size. This means that the cost of insurance will be less than the advertised price.

Hi, just wanted to say I've been one of those people who have been "lurking" in the background for the last couple of months. Your comments and those of the other prominent posters make me feel like I have found a place for clear thinking. Thanks for your posts, even the snarky ones. Cheers!
