  •  Well, because my income was $0 last year. (0+ / 0-)

    So the subsidy is 98% or whatever. I guess I'd pay $500.

    And then the year when my income was $100,000, I'd pay $2,500.

    I'd need to make two-hundred-and-something thousand a year before I was paying more than I am now, at %2.5 percent of income. And that's ignoring the cap.

    Unless I'm fataly confused, which happens with financial subjects.

      Not with respect to the year you made $0, but if you make $100,000 you're going to be paying a shit-ton (technical term) for health care, should you get sick in any way.

        I do this:

        I don't get the mandated insurance. Instead, I pay the fee. $500-2,5000 a year, instead of $5,5000 a year I pay now.

        Then if I get sick, I buy the insurance. They can't reject me for having a pre-existing condition, so I'm good. Or at least better than I am now, because my policy has a $15,000 deductible.
