More ACA questions

OK, so the Atlantic (which I usually love) has this article about The Hidden Marriage Penalty for ACA and how some people are ineligible for subsidies...

Any married couple that earns more than 400 percent of the federal poverty level—that is $62,040—for a family of two earns too much for subsidies under Obamacare. "If you're over 400 percent of poverty, you're never eligible for premium" support, explains Gary Claxton, director of the Health Care Marketplace Project at the Kaiser Family Foundation.


I could be wrong, but that seems like it makes sense to me? $62,040 for a family of just two (no kids) seems like a healthy income for most regions of the country. Why would they need the subsidy?
