A healthcare plan shouldn’t send you to the doctor for heartburn and anxiety. Yet a new report from the Kaiser Family Foundation confirms just how unaffordable health insurance is on the federal exchange, especially for older middle-income earners who don’t qualify for federal assistance. It is further evidence Americans need alternatives to the plans offered under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) more than ever. According to the report, a 60-year-old earning the median household income should expe...
