    DOH my name is Black Label, if the Government says it, It must be true.

    OMG dude, do you know how much the same government told us MC would cost when they passed that? Are you aware then only a few years later it was costing 33 Times more than we were told?

    lol

    You earn the idiot of the week award for Blindly believing what your Government claims.

    Silly Rightwing Agitprop!!! Obamacare is free- the rich will pay for it. Obamacare is going to bend the cost curve, and lower the deficit, and cure cancer, and lower the sea levels, and cure the planet, and cause unicorns and rainbows to appear all over the world.

    The far left wing of the Democratic party has to be stoped, imagine how many more trillions will Obama spend if he gets a second term. Obama has to be stoped.

    The CBO doesn't recognize cost savings until they actually happen..

    Romneycare is a great success, none of the PUB doom and gloom.You are duped.

    Frontline said cost rises are now 2%, easily the lowest in the USA. So change the channel...

    For this reason he also provided for subsidies for individuals living below three times the federal poverty line to make insurance affordable. This “three-legged stool”—banning discrimination in insurance markets, mandating that individuals purchase insurance, and providing low-income subsidies for insurance purchase—became the basis for both our reform in Massachusetts and for the Affordable Care Act (ACA).

    The enormous success of health-care reform in the almost six years since its passage in Massachusetts can make us more confident that this three-legged stool will work for the nation as a whole. We have covered about two-thirds of uninsured Massachusetts residents, and have lowered the premiums in the non-group market by half relative to national premium trends. And we have done so with broad public support. Moreover, this reform succeeded without interfering with the employer-sponsored insurance market that works for most of our residents: employer-sponsored insurance coverage has actually risen in Massachusetts, while falling sharply nationally, and the premiums for employer-sponsored insurance rose no faster in Massachusetts than they did nationally.

    This was all possible because the individual mandate ended the “death spiral” of trying to obtain fairly priced insurance by just forcing insurers to charge everyone the same price. The bottom line is that we can’t have fairly priced insurance for the healthy and sick alike without the broad participation that is guaranteed by the mandate. The mandate is the spinach we have to eat to get the dessert that is fairly priced insurance coverage.

    In all fainess 2.6 trillion is only twenty six hundred billion, so what's the problem, we should be able to pull this much out of our couches.
