Uh huh. You know what even funnier? Watching you pretend you knew the facts all along.

btw, this IS mine, not one i got off the internet however i half talked to at least 6 friends and family members that have gotten similar letters.
I see that there is reference to the ACA. What I was pointing out is there is no going "on Obamacare". It's still private insurance companies selling you policies, not the government.

I'd like to see some numbers justifying these price increases from the insurance companies, honestly. This smacks of the same nonsense when gas stations raise prices at the pumps the day that crude prices go up. They have an excuse to soak you for more money, regardless of whether their costs have actually gone up or not.

Luckily our insurance premiums did not go up, yet. Will they? Probably. Will they go up more than they otherwise would have if not for the ACA? Possibly. Will we still buy health insurance? You bet your ass we will.

Hopefully the exchanges will do their jobs and increase competition, thus lowering premiums eventually.

the reason for the increase in policy cost is from all the required conditions added by the ACA, as in maternity care(whether you need it or not) and any pre-existing conditions you may have.

the next step for Obama to sell this mess is to change the name from the Affordable Health Care Act, to simply the Hellth Care Act. Yes HELLth Care

As I said in the post you quoted, I'd like to see the numbers around the projected increase in expenses to the ins companies that justify these rate hikes.

My deductibles all went up 50 percent!!!! That's right 50 @&#@@ percent!!!!!!!
Doctor visit was $20.00, now $35.00. Specialist was $30.00 now $65.00!!!!!!

I guess ODUMMO CARE is easier than forcing these worthless slugs into becoming productive citizens so they could have what we have. As long as we are so stupid as to let out life's worth to be drained out of us by these worthless non-producers, it will not change. ALL elected officials need to go! Vote them ALL OUT!!!!

The train wreck is coming!! Are you ready for it???

Our premiums at work went up about 25% and the coverage went down 10% and the out of pocket expenses went up 20% and the copay's went up 10%. Who doesn't love socialized healthcare??!!

Yes, the media is already trying to shelf that term.................

Don't Call It 'Obamacare'

DOH! Media still calling ‘Obamacare’ racist term

Dems and media backing away from the name 'Obamacare'

NPR, AP Bowing to Pressure on Terms: 'Please Avoid Overusing "Obamacare"'
