    Sounds like you're getting help when you need it.

    I'm glad the system is changing to help people who earn less.  By the way, I'm finishing up year 2 of full-time in a new business venture and I'm still ramping up myself.  2014 should be a better year, which means I don't get subsidies.  But I'm glad that folks like you will have an easier time in the future.

    Good luck in 2014.

    I like Marsha Blackburn on Facebook. Don't hate.

    •  I might not have needed the help without ACA (0+ / 0-)

      The old coverage was a strain, but one we could just manage.  Hard to know what the rate increase would have been this year, but I doubt that it would be anywhere near 50%.

      OTOH, we can now choose a plan with more coverage, which is a win.

      When our income goes up, we'll have to re-examine.
