For months now, we’ve been waiting to hear how much Obamacare will drive up the cost of health insurance for people who purchase coverage on their own. Last night, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services finally began to provide some data on how Americans will fare on Obamacare’s federally-sponsored insurance exchanges. HHS’ press release is full of happy talk about how premiums will be “lower than originally expected.” But the reality is starkly different.
Based on a Manhattan Institute analysis of the HHS numbers, Obamacare will increase underlying insurance rates for younger men by an average of 97 to 99 percent, and for younger women by an average of 55 to 62 percent. Worst off is North Carolina, which will see individual-market rates triple for women, and quadruple for men.

Sadly those 48 million newly insured would not be able to see a doctor until they meet their forced insurance co pays that can run in the thousands of dollars depending how big the co pays in the state they are living at are regulated and we all know how well the states do that.
Co pays can be run yearly by the insurance and the Obamacrap doesn't say anything about how to control that.
People will pay for ever their insurance premiums and when they get an emergency will still be screwed with the bills if their co pays have not been met yet.
Money talks and the whore politicians open their pockets while the people get screwed.

Not to even mention the real alarm bells.
It's the high deductibles that will kill millions.
Some of the 'plans' are as high as $5000 !!!!!!!
Dr. Obama will help you
