More "Stunning" reports about the costs of health insurance.

Some sources are claiming 3x higher rates soon.

Just in time for the November elections.

Lots of past claims by high ranking politicians promising big savings.

Hmmm.

This means taxpayers get a double-whammy.

Taxpayer funded subsidies and tax credits and less return for middle income wage earners.

Watch for more medical expense related bankruptcies in coming years.

Even HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius says rates will go up -- but not as bad (as in "slower" increases).




For those few who are privileged to enjoy the wonders of ObamaCare, get ready to go bankrupt before you even get to start paying your massive deductible.

Health industry officials say ObamaCare-related premiums will double in some parts of the country, countering claims recently made by the administration.

The expected rate hikes will be announced in the coming months amid an intense election year, when control of the Senate is up for grabs. The sticker shock would likely bolster the GOP’s prospects in November and hamper ObamaCare insurance enrollment efforts in 2015.

Well of course they are going to.
How else is this train wreck going to be funded, when they can't even reach the number of people signing up needed to fund it?

What did people think was going to happen?

Well, you don't say.

Whodathunkit?

They got far less than their projected numbers that they needed to sign up.... especially young people that were needed more than any other group, they created a larger group of uninsured than existed before the plan took effect... even though it hasn't taken effect for so many (so get ready for more uninsured when they fall into the plan) due to Obama delaying implementation of the law.

Seems like they have a plan, but it isn't what they were trying to sell us originally.

First please tell me this isn't because more GOP states are opting out of the expanded Medicaid thing.

If not, then we can talk.

If so, please tell people that.

This isn't really surprising considering that we expect young people to pay the health care costs for the aging population. I remember when I was just starting out in life and the last thing I wanted was an expensive health care policy. I was much more interested in paying for my car and apartment.

Young people today have a nearly 18% unemployment rate yet they are expected to shoulder the burden of paying for this healthcare disaster. Is it any wonder that they are saying NO.

So the ACA was a failure of a law, doomed at the start, is that the answer? Poorly conceived and executed?

Who passed such a poorly conceived and written bill? Who was in charge of so skillfully executing it?

We were told that costs would go down... for everyone.

But then again, Obama told us "if you like your plan, you can keep your plan, period."

The news here is, we were told the cost of healthcare would in fact go down with Obamacare. It is not going in that direction, is it.

Add to the above, the cost of our Dictator's new healthcare pyramid scheme, is far exceeding the the incomes of those expected to pay for it.

Hence his new proposal we give up our cable TV and cellphones, so we can meet HIS expectations.

Understand now?

Which cracks me up.
Your talking what? 100.00 -120.00 a month?
Has ANYONE gotten that rate from the healthcare quote?

No. Even looking at pooling our resources as a separated, as in not legally divorced couple, to get the best quote we could and split the cost. Was still over $600 a month with the only ONE provider option in our area.

And we are both in good health, with no medical history of ailments, nor children.

Ahhh, simple solution.
They need to pass a law that everyone has to own 10 cell phones, each with a separate plan. If you don't, you would incur a penalty... er, tax.
Then they could tell us to give up our cell phones to afford health care and still be accurate.

Thanks...went to the hill...which has a much more objective take. Why was "Jamie" whatever listed as the source?

The actual text of the "Blog" post (Which it is filed under) actually has much more balanced content, which makes me think a Hill editor took a swing at the post before putting it up on the site.

Rates were increasing annually between 7-10% pre ACA...we will see..
