    We have and along with it we were informed that because of the new Obamcare bill we will see an increase in our policy rates jump anywhere from 16% to 18%. Not only will our monthly premiums sky rocket but our co pay will jump from $35 per visit to $50.

    So the lies from the democrats were just that, BIG OLE STINKING PILE OF SHIT LIES.

    Health care costs rose about 12% in the past year. I think you guys are listening to bullshit. Too few Obamacare provisions have gone into effect to account for any significant increase in rates. Insurance companies do make rates based upon expected experience in the coming year, but those predictions must be actuarially sound. No insurance regulator would bless an 18% increase across the board for any group merely because some members might be adding a college student to their policies.

    Insurers are lying, guys. Use your noodles...that ain't so far-fetched, is it?

    It happened. Just cuz you didn't read it doesn't mean it doesn't exist.

    The Administration inserted a threat in the bill to any insurance company that dared to raise rates to pay for the new regulations. I read the Department of Health and Human Services own regulations that stated as much.

    There was a 39% increase on some people's premiums but the administration is telling them to provide detailed justification for this. My question is whether insurance companies are saying it is because of healthcare reform. If so, I'd like to see proof of that and not just some Repub talking point on this message board.

    It's really getting tiring listening to these asinine memes.

    This Obamacare crap is going to cost all of us. Dearly. And frankly I don't want government that involved in my private life. I have a right to control and have a say-so where my health care is concerned. I have good medical coverage now at a reasonable cost, but all that is going away unless this albatross of idiocy is shot down - and I pray that it will be shot down deader than hell.
