A 20-something of my acquaintance (H.S. graduate, working for barely above minium wage as a caregiver to handicapped adults) finally got almost registered for O'care. She spent most of two days online, cursed out the website a few times, and finally had to call someone at O'care to get it sorted out. After a half-hour on the phone, she learned her new medical insurance - the only one she can come close to affording - would cost her $268 a month with a $1,300 deductible. (In our state, there's only one insurance company participating in the "exchange.")  They told her she'd qualify for a tax credit - NOT a subsidy - of $93 per month. She's still not fully registered, though.

Her father, a military vet, voted for Obama in the belief that healthcare would be free for her.
