Re the Oct. 10 article about the family of five who acquired a health insurance policy via the new health exchanges provided by the Affordable Care Act ("Utah family gets coverage for $123 a month," Tribune, Oct. 10): While I don’t fault that family for getting a health insurance policy that costs $850 a month while only paying $123 in a completely legal manner, I wonder why someone isn’t asking the all-important question.
Or, if it’s being asked, why hasn’t the answer sparked some kind of concern, at best, or outrage at worst. So I’ll ask it now: Who is paying the other $727 a month that the policy costs? The answer is you and me, the taxpayers. How can supporters of Obamacare justify this?
