    My premiums are under $10 a month. If I were in the 18-34 age group rather than 50-64, I could have gotten a silver plan for well under $100 a month -- and I earn double what minimum wage workers do.

    So yes, some young healthy and higher-income people (who are high-income but in jobs that do not include health insurance) will find the premiums way too high for their liking, though probably lower than their car insurance or their car payments.

    But many more will discover that the bogey-man that they've been hearing about for the past three years actually turns out to be less expensive and more useful than anyone has told them. (Remember, free birth control. . . .)
