'Affordable' care? Really?

My health plan was not canceled, but increased from $580 per month to $1,200 per month. Imagine my outrage when I received that letter recently. This plan is on my wife and I, each with a $5,000 deductible, plus $500 deductibles on prescriptions.

I went online to examine the Affordable Care Act plan (Obamacare) – no problem getting there – and applied for coverage. Results were $1,200 to $1,400 with an $8,000 deductible! Looks like insurance companies are raising rates to match the government’s.

I have two questions: How can the government force me to pay $300 per week for coverage when I cannot afford it? Why is this called the Affordable Care Act?
