    In the United States, how do you afford paying for health insurance, if you are unemployed, or only employed part-time (since health insurance is not frequently offered with part-time positions)?  Since the (un)Affordable Care Act was passed, it would have cost my spouse $800/month to add me, and the same if I had added him.  The (un)Affordable Care Act plans that you can purchase directly are terrible plans, and have extremely high deductibles' leaving many people stuck financially, whether they purchase it or not, as if they don't purchase it, they are heavily taxed at tax time.
