    Two pieces of good news this week: the national uninsurance rate has gone down for the first time in 5 years and health insurance premium growth has slowed substantially this year.

    Actually he is correct on both points. Increases in insurance premiums have been at their lowest level the past two years at 4% each year. These are not just made up numbers either; they actually coincide with my rate increases each of the last two years, and I do pay for my entire health insurance plan as I am self-employed.

    The real question is what will happen once we hit 2014 and the entire law goes into effect. Personally, I think it will work well for most people, but I understand it will be wait and see.

    The more people on welfare and disability, the more people on government medicaid insurance. obama's policyl of increasing the dependency class is working.

    You really need to get off that train, because it's not going anywhere. But we do know more people are becoming dependent on welfare because SS is considered part of those welfare numbers and we have record numbers now retiring. But of course, you already knew that.

    Forget about SS... every government dependency program is up in enrollment. Food Stamps are off the chart. I am thinking of kicking back and letting the government support me too. Seems that the term "personal responsibilty" is not in Obama''s vocabulary.

    That might be the only means of survival. Certainly if you work or own a business the government has intentions of crushing you until you are on the dole.
