Does Obamacare still suck if you can't afford it?

The Associated Press apparently just noticed that the Affordable Care Act might be misnamed:
WASHINGTON (AP) — It's called the Affordable Care Act, but President Barack Obama's health care law may turn out to be unaffordable for many low-wage workers, including employees at big chain restaurants, retail stores and hotels.That might seem strange since the law requires medium-sized and large employers to offer "affordable" coverage or face fines.But what's reasonable? Because of a wrinkle in the law, companies can meet their legal obligations by offering policies that would be too expensive for many low-wage workers. For the employee, it's like a mirage — attractive but out of reach.
No shit, Sherlock. Nobody read the fucking thing before they jammed it down our throats, and now people are starting to realize that maybe it sucks. And it hasn't even kicked in yet. Look forward to a big post on how bad it sucks. Maybe this weekend. I want to include lots of links on how bad Obamacare sucks, and believe me, they're there.
