I heard on The Bulls and Bears that 16-20 million will lose their current health insurance. A lot of people are happy with their plans, and unhappy with the Obamacare changes. They will be paying more for things they don't want or need.

happyg we tried to warn them... no one wanted to listen. I argued until I was blue in the face with a guy in Utah who swore this was going to save he and his family money.. I told him there was no way it would save them a dime, and infact would increase his premiums.  Sadly.. I was right.

BTW starting the first of the month a LOT of our patients who had insurance are now cash.

Wasn't the excuse for having ACA was because 15 million were without health care? Now, more people than ever will be without it, and will be forced to get it or pay huge fines, since the fines double and triple with the years.

That was the party line, the "real" reason no one wanted to face (at least liberals) is this has always been about control because if they control your healthcare then they can control everything you do.  Glenn Beck shared the writings of Cass Sunstein trying to warn people what they were about and he was called a kook... nope the real kook was/is Sunstein (you know the husband of our UN Ambassador) not Beck.

I remember his show on television where he connected all the dots with Sunstein. I even looked him up, and the proof is there for anyone who wants something other than the MSM version.

My brother employs about 100 in California. He is strongly considering giving everybody a raise equal to the employer cost of their current policies, and being done with haggling with insurance companies, administering it, etc.

His own personal family policy jumped from $2,500 deductible per person, to $15,000 deductible per person, according to our discussion an hour ago.

The sole purpose of the ACA is to control our lives.

I have a feeling a lot of small to medium sized employers are coming around to that view.  Of course, those raises won't keep up with the year-over-year premium increases that are coming, so it'll soon enough be cold comfort to those who get them.
