The ACA helps the middle class buy health insurance, NO doubt. BUT.....if people are at or below the poverty line--- they actually qualify for Medicare, *not* Affordable Care Act subsidies.If one goes to HealthCare.GOV, and enters a yearly income that is at or below the poverty line..... they will in fact be told they don't get subsidies from ACA and rather -they will get Medicaid or in the case of kids, CHIP insurance (a fine program that Hillary Clinton helped on )Actually ACA increased Medicaid eligibility so if not for expanded Medicaid, many people would fall into a donut hole of no insurance at all. And, of course some states decided to not accept the federal expansion of Medicaid under ACA and those poor have no subsidized coverage.
