Hasn’t seen affordable part of health care

Isn’t the Affordable Care Act great? Since it was enacted, the premium on my individual $5,000 deductible policy has gone up $100 a month. I thought the act was supposed to make rates go down.

I have to get a doctor’s prescription for over-the-counter medicine to be paid for by my medical savings account, and I have to pay income tax on my health insurance premium.

When do I see the “affordable” part?
