“The average family enrolled in [an Obamacare] Silver Plan will pay a maximum of $13,725 for out-of-pocket expenses, with Silver Plan deductibles increasing by 13 percent in just the past year alone,” Justin Haskins of the Heartland Institute writes. “Health insurance this expensive is virtually useless.”
