    Don't worry though, eventually Obamacare will save somebody, somewhere, some money.

    I was on one those low cost health insurance plans.....I never really saw how it saved me money. It was cheaper to get birth control at Planned Parenthood, then get it through my low cost low benefit insurance plan.

    As most sudents are under 26, they can get their insurance ala their parents.
    And yes, because of the mandate, I hope the Supremes shoot Obamacare down.

    This is another situation like where McDonald's was dropping "policies" that we were basically a scam.

    Yep, they take money out of your pay check for crap insurance. I was on one of these plans when I worked at Albertson's.
    I never even used it to get prescriptions, it was cheaper to go to Walmart. Then it took me six months to get them to cover a doctor's visit.

    Yeah those policies were all a complete joke to begin with, and most people are better off now that most of them are being dropped
