All I have to add is:
Of course the rates are going to sky rocket. You've got a forced buy situation should this go through. They can charge whatever they want, and you still have to buy it. Or face an even bigger cost in the way of a fine.
Where the heck did anyone think the money was coming from????
Go back to the original threads on healthcare and you will see where all of us "nay-sayers" said exactly the same thing.

Why in the world would they WARN everyone if there was legislation pending that would amount to a winfall for them? They wouldn't. They'd be doing everything in their power to ensure that the legislation passed.
But instead they are lobbying hard and fast against it. Why? ...
