Do you make over $20,000 a year? Get ready to pay more money for your health insurance. According to a detailed analysis by the National Journal, Obamacare is looking more unaffordable than ever.

A single wage earner must make less than $20,000 to see his or her current premiums drop or stay the same under Obamacare, an independent review by National Journal found.

For those seeking family-of-four coverage under the ACA, about 43 percent will see cost savings. Families must earn less than or equal to $62,300, or they, too, will be looking at a bigger bill.
