    and except for the states with asshat republicans for governors or in the legislature, a family at $25,000 doesn't get asked to pay anything for the insurance.    They are also generally eligible for some other aid programs, food aid to some degree, sometimes housing subsidies, heat subsidies, etc.  

    A national single payer plan would be preferable so we wouldn't be drawing any lines.    But if you prefer the game of well someone is always worse off instead of dealing with the reality of who can meet needs versus unlimited funds for wants,  yes,   people with only $25k are worse off.  But both the $25k and $50k family is more stretched to meet actual needs.  But if new cars, big houses are more important for people earning $94k a year to you than people at $50k getting health insurance, you're right it is absolutely hellacious about those poor folks not gettting a subsidy.
