      No facts in that article. Just opinion from a right winger. Show me facts that health care premiums will rise under Obamacare, as you call it, and I will listen.

        Here is the back story and the link you did not access in the story.

        As much a moron as Olde. Accessing a link is too difficult. But in the end you will be paying more for your health insurance, unless you are a welfare cheat.

          I have one more opinion...but it's my own.

          Quote: Weeks before the election, insurance companies began telling state regulators it is those very provisions that are forcing them to increase their rates.

          I don't have the time to dig up the info, but in just reading the article - I question, what made them raise the rates in previous years? There wasn't ObamaCare to blame, yet they still raised the rates annually. How convenient for them to now blame ObamaCare.

              Health care premiums have risen year to year for as long as I can remember. This cry baby right-winger wants to blame everything on Obama. No point in trying to persuade him or anyone sharing his views because they are stuck in first gear.

                  Think about why insurance companies are being driven out of business and the root cause. Greed. There's no way a doctor should charge $1600 to ply two pins out of a person's arm that took less than two minutes. Highway robbery. Doctors, hospitals and other medical care facilities are totally ripping off patients and their insurers. Add to that the greedy lawyers who have their paws out for medical malpractice claims and you have a huge bunch of c.rap thrown into your insurance premiums.

                    That's it! I will never forget how my insurance had to pay $5000 for 30 stitches for a cut my son had.

                    Several years ago I broke my ankle - my insurance didn't cover everything of that and I ended up paying a big portion. The hospital gave me a sole for under my cast. It was a rubber sole with two Velcro straps. This thing was listed on the bill costing $150. I thought I don't see right.

                      Corporate health insurance is making us sick...., or I could say they are making themselves sick!

                      Insurance is easy to hate. On the one hand, the best-case scenario is you pay for a service you will never use, making insurance seem like a rip-off. On the other hand, when insurance is needed, it means something bad has happened, which can leave a bad taste in your mouth. This goes for all kinds of insurance. Homeowners, renters, business, car, life and health insurance—they all share this fundamental curse.

                      But health insurance has done something that no other insurance has. When it’s time for an oil change, your car insurance doesn’t pay for it. When your washing machine breaks, your homeowners insurance won’t buy you a new one. But when you need your teeth cleaned, your blood pressure checked or your eyes examined, you expect your policy to cover these routine events. We’ve begun to think of health insurance as a savings account from which we can draw regularly, rather than a product to turn to when an unexpected disaster strikes...

                        Health Spending Hits 17.3 Percent of GDP In Largest Annual Jump

                        Despite the most severe economic downturn in 80 years, healthcare spending in the U.S. rose an estimated 5.7 percent to $2.5 trillion in 2009, according to Medicare’s actuaries. Even more alarming, the percentage of the GDP spent on healthcare jumped to 17.3 percent from 16.2 percent in 2008-the largest one-year increase since 1960. At the current rate of growth, healthcare costs are predicted to nearly double to $4.5 trillion in 2019. At that point, they will account for 19.3 percent-almost a fifth-of our GDP.

                        Before delving into the details, I’d like to point out that if, there’s one factor (aside from public ignorance) that is preventing healthcare reformers from restraining this cost growth, it is the very size of the healthcare sector. The bigger it grows, and the more people and capital it employs, the harder it is for anybody or any institution to rein it in. It’s like “the sorcerer’s apprentice,” only the sorcerer is nowhere in sight.
