To the Editor:

Letter-writer Chris Odea (“Obamacare working,” June 1) claims of the 8 million people who have bought insurance through the Affordable Care Act, 90 percent have paid their premiums.

Several weeks ago, I read an article in the Northwest Herald that reported only 62 percent made their first premium payment.

Hope someone can give us the correct information. Ninety percent is good; 62 percent looks like trouble down the road.
