Yes. Health insurance costs never went up before the PPACA.

50% over 8 years is a big difference from 40% in 2 years...especially since ACA was supposed to REDUCE premiums...

The IRS has no credibility any longer since it was so eager to illegally target political groups without a shred of authority to do so, so the idea that they can garnish bank accounts is absurd.

OBAMACARE COVERAGE TO INCREASE BY UP TO 20% IN 2015
So your choices are ... A one-time "penalty" of nearly $400 for not enrolling, or getting stuck with a policy you "hope" your doctor and nearest hospital will accept, which increases by up to 1/5 every year.

“Consumers should shop around,” said Marilyn B. Tavenner, administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, which runs the federal insurance exchange serving three dozen states. “With new options available this year, they’re likely to find a better deal.” She asserted that the data showed that “the Affordable Care Act is working.”
A new Gallup Poll suggests that seven in 10 Americans with insurance bought through the exchanges rate the coverage and the care as excellent or good, and most were planning to keep it.
The data, released by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, indicates that price increases will be modest for many people willing to change plans. In a typical county, the price will rise 5 percent for the cheapest silver plan and 4 percent for the second cheapest.

Ranger, I have a question for you. You stated "And neither is the gov gonna arbitrarily take $$$ outta my bank". How are you going to stop them, if they decide to enforce this law?
The only way I can see this happening is you work for cash only, and do not have a account. You also do not pay any taxes. Either way if the IRS wants their penalty money they can take it from you. All they need is your Social Security Number.

I just fail to see just how you could not deduce that " wealth transfer " of Øbamacare/ACA was the desired end result of seizing & socializing the 17% part of the economy (health insurance industry & health care services/treatments) was presidential overreach to begin with
