Cue the statists to come in and tell us it's all the evil insurance company's fault, and that come January everybody will have totally affordable health insurance. All the ACA does is give billions to billionaire insurance agencies and doesn't require any kind of price decrease in return.

And nevermind that a lot of Americans have seen a ridiculous jump just like this one. My parents' premiums went up 33% this year.

Anyone who thought that PPACA could add all sorts of "no out of pocket" cost special treatments, lower deductables and cover dependents for 7 more years without causing premium rates to go up was a fool. What happens under PPACA is that you pay for those "free" procedures/medications up front so you may as well use them.

So how can it be the fault of Obamacare when its not in effect yet?

What is in effect now?????/

CEO CARE.........................and the extorsionist criminals Dr's of the AMA.

Oh and after jan 1 people. This is your bill. (when Obamacare takes effect)

And remember, this shows your YEARLY cost, then divide by 12 for monthy costs.

I need to know more. What are the specifics of the bill? How will the bill increase or decrease the cost of existing premiums?

Take a look at "Guaranteed Issuance" and "Community Rating" and think about the implications of those two items being enshrined into law in tandem. ;)

Here is your costs.

and if you make less than $14k, you will get Medicaid in expansion states, no kids or disability needed. EVERYONE gets medicaid.

In the non-expansion states $10k and over gets subsidized exchange coverage. EVERYONE. Less than $10 will have to move to a different state.

No way this makes it past the results of the 2014 election cycle. Democrats are going to get murdered in that one.

Don't worry, the whiny libs that forced this down our throats don't know what is in the bill either.

The ama Which represent about 20% of Doctors went along with Obama Care.

First most of those exchanges are not now in place and may never be in place. Certainly not by october.
Second when it comes to medicine the government has always over promised and under delivered.
Third nothing is free. The government promising you it is going totake money out of one pocket and stuff it back in another doesn't translate to cheaper.
