I have small family me, my wife, and my son. My brother applied for Obama care yesterday he told me his monthly bill will be $160.00 a month. He is single. I cant afford this amount every month.

Cost assistance is based on income. As a self-employed individual you can write off 100% of your premiums (including dental and long-term care coverage) from profits. This should allow you to project an income above 100% of the Federal Poverty Level to qualify for maximum cost assistance.
NOTE: For others, if your state expanded Medicaid, make sure to estimate costs above 138% of the Federal Poverty Level to ensure that you get Marketplace cost assistance and not Medicaid if that is what you want.
