"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."

As any number of observers have noted, this is all part of the greater plan. Obama will blame the insurance companies and "greedy" medical service providers, demanding further action by Congress... leading to more chaos and a public demand for action... leading in turn, to an "emergency" government takeover.
Liberalism isn't really about making the world a better place. It's about reassuring the elites that they are good people for wanting to rule over it.

" Yet, we have people who are just now shocked by the premium increases they will endure. It baffles me."

The American people have been conditioned for decades by politicians and the media to believe that there is an endless supply of other people's money, wealth, to pay for things for everyone.  You hear it today constantly..." How can such a wealthy nation not have the money for..."

Well, a wealthy nation WON'T be wealthy for long if everyone gets all the same stuff without striving for and achieving it by their own efforts.  This is the story of Detroit being written at the national level.

No reason to be baffled, this is just our population of junkies taking another hit of "someone else will pay for it."

Quite possibly.  Anything to keep the sheep from looking up.

Could it be more than just high premium prices?

The "deductibles" seem to be sky-high as well. REALLY high.

Seems like this is a well-rigged scheme: charge a high price to "buy in", but make it unlikely to reap much in returns (you STILL pay out-of-pocket unless you're really, really ill).

Almost as if it was less a plan to provide health insurance, rather than raise revenue for income redistribution...

I would call it a very healthy tax increase not health insurance. People will be going into deep debt to pay the premiums and then high deductibles when they finally need health care. Maybe that is what they want people to do get so discouraged that working no longer pays and we will have poverty everywhere. I am not sure why this is a goal for Obama but that is what is happening. Do the elites want all of us to be penniless while they live high on the hog? Why would they care to bankrupt  people who are just going along paying their bills and living a nice quiet life being good citizens? To me none of this makes sense. To have a country with most people living close to poverty doesn't make for a wealthy country or give the rich the means to get richer off citizens it just doesn't make a bit of sense to me. Most of the citizens of this great country are not millionaires but in the past have lived very nice lives raising their families saving for and buying homes taking a little vacation every year and enjoying life for the most part also living a much higher quality of life then a majority of other countries. Why is changing this good for anyone rich or poor? I really don't understand the socialist or communist way of life it does not make for a happy society so why encourage it? The only thing that makes sense is Obama is an enemy of the state who is wanting us all dead. I don't understand why anyone democrat or republican making over 30,000 a year would want anything to do with Obama and his czars.
