Do you work for a company or is it an individual health insurance policy?

No, I drank sanity juice by the gallon after drinking all of the Ron Paul/Alex Jones koolaid from 2009-2012. The sanity juice tastes a hell of a lot better . Life is much much better outside of the Libertarian/tinfoil hat echo chamber. You should try it sometime

So $140 a month is supposed to affordable?

Depends on your situation. If you (or your family) had some serious medical problems at that time you'd likely take COBRA.

I did some quotes for myself and that is a laughable statement that obamacare will be cheaper - who is buying into this crap????
Myself, 40 year old non smoker. Plans start out at $127 a month with a $3000 deductible. (that's before they take into consideration any medical issues.. i.e. Asthma).. So.. someone needs to do some more "spin" on the whole cost of this plan for people.

my cell phone plan (txt, phone, messaging) $120 a month.

BTW... we aren't talking COBRA which is a completely separate issue and is offered to people who loose there jobs..

My current plan through my employer i pay $0 (this year) next year that cost is unknown.
