So Minnesota will join the other 17 states where Obamacare has
already collapsed! Some states are giving taxpayer loans to
keep the Co-ops afloat, to the tune of 110 million or more

It will destroy the middle class, there is not doubt about it, and everyone except the super rich will be wholly dependent on government to provide for their every need.

I distinctly remember being told (back when they were trying to pass Obamacare) that the people that were not paying anything for their free health care would have to pay something for it under Obamacare.
On average, rates in the state will rise by about 60 percent, said Shane Delaney, a spokesman for MNSure, the state’s marketplace for Obamacare plans. About 250,000 people, or 5 percent of the state’s population, were covered under plans bought on the individual market, including plans bought on the Affordable Care Act markets as well as outside it.Many people in the exchanges are eligible for tax credits to help reduce the cost of the premiums, Rothman’s office said, though those subsidies cut off once a family of four has an income of $97,200 or more. The law requires all Americans to buy insurance or pay a penalty. In Minnesota, a low-cost plan for a single person last year had annual premiums of about $2,800, before any tax credits, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation.

And lastly, under obamacare my insurance IS less than my phone bill. And?
Well, good for you!
Would I be wrong in guessing that it is subsidized? If it is, then it is NOT less than your phone bill, it's just that somebody else is paying for it.
My wife and I looked into getting subsidized coverage last year because simply because the law said we had to. We were told that we are essentially too poor to qualify for subsidized insurance.
How's that for a working system?

It's possible many employer paid benefits will soon cut into employee raises.
