    Just got the summary of my healthcare package.

    In 2011 my premiums will go up 44.5%

    Office visit co-pays up 25%

    Prescription co-pays up 50%

    And these co-pays will no longer count toward my annual deductable, which is also increasing 25%.

    FUCK YOU OBAMA!

    Seriously...


    FUCK YOU!!! :evil:

    Nothing is paid for out of thin air. He want's control over the industry, then he will deny the service, he is now claiming we all have a right to. We will all have a Right to be insured, and a right to wait in line to have the procedures we need delayed and denied because of the cost, only after the Government becomes responsible for payment. Nice Scheme. ;)

    Historically, about 5% per year.

    I'm not talking chump change here bones. I've done the math and all in I'm looking at roughly a $2,000 - $2,500 per year increase.

    With true reform, they would reflect actual cost of service with a formula for profit margin. The system is so corrupted and over burdened, there is nothing fair minded about what is reflected in our medical bills.

    and btw: In case anyone thinks these increases are skewed on account of my company passing along the entire increase to it's employees, that's not so. My company's costs have also gone up by the same percentage.

    Umm I think HC costs have been rising at double digit % numbers for some time.

    Why complain? This will look great on GDP numbers.
    The only way the economy will "recover" is for us to pay more for the same stuff.
