Blame the ACA for making premiums unaffordable for self-employed
Regarding the recent Vital Signs blog post “Self-employed people weigh returning to corporate jobs if Senate passes ACA repeal bill” (Modern Healthcare.com, July 24), much of the post reads as though the self-employed must depend on subsidized healthcare because they cannot pay for theirs on their own.
That’s absurd, except to the degree that the Affordable Care Act has made health insurance prohibitively expensive for everyone who does not qualify for a subsidy. Then, yes, that is precisely the middle class’ objection to it.
