HARTFORD -- Since it was adopted six years ago, the Affordable Care Act – better known as “Obamacare” -- has provided over 20 million people with insurance.  But Obamacare has been plagued by rising costs, insurers leaving the program -- and diminishing options. In other words the “Affordable” Care Act is fast becoming unaffordable.

Frances Padilla,  President of the Universal Health Care Foundation of Connecticut,  joins Stan for a frank discussion about the problems and possible solutions.

Some 10.4 million people were enrolled in Obamacare plans as of June 30, the administration announced. That's down from 11.1 million at the end of March. Some 10 million are expected to be enrolled at year's end.
