    Funny thing how premiums have only increased by 4% the last two years. Obamacare must be doing something right. Before Obamacare, premiums were increasing by more than 10% every year as far back as I can remember. Of course, most of you don't see this because you only pay for a small percentage of your health insurance as your employer pays the majority, or you are one of those who don't have insurance because it's your choice not to purchase it, since you know everyone else will pick up the tab for you should you get sick.

    It is only going to get worse. Especially for Retirees in the military .They want to raise their premiums more then 300 percent in the next 5 years.. We just got a letter saying what the first jump will be . But the unions get to keep their cushy benefits without contributing anything in the public sector

    Funny thing is that obamacare doesn't take effect until 2014. The premium increases or lack of has nothing to do with it.

    Several parts of it have indeed taken effect.

    Timeline of the Affordable Care Act | HealthCare.gov

    See in particular the Review of Insurance Rates and Medical Loss Ratio requirements.

    But you're right, most of the good stuff, the really effective pieces, are yet to come.

    She wore her white coat to a political rally? What a dork.

    BTW: the average person should be scared of the nastiness that resides on a typical white coat.
