I know.

What I meant was that by 35? Most folks know if they need coverage.

Besides the cost increase for me at least, the other thing that irks me is that I live as healthy as I can in order to minimize health problems. Now I have to to subsidize the plans for people that choose otherwise.

I said they did not have HUGE increases.

Truth is, the ACA helps people who don't make much money. Not that anyone cares if those people are insured, apparently.

But, you're cool with the ones who live as healthy as possible and still have health problems, right?

I've been buying my own health insurance for over 10 years. Premiums ALWAYS go up, every single year. It's got nothing to do with Obamacare

Your democrats at the Federal level, including some stupid Republicans, endorsed this foolish law that is destroying all of us. Want to blame someone, start with these people.

The competition you are referring in lower rates for ie; gas stations, restaurants, grocery stores and all of the above does not work anymore in the healthcare industry. Obamacare is destroying all of this to achieve a socialistic healthcare system. Like Germany and Canada - its does not work well in these countries. People have months/years waits to see doctors.

We had the greatest healthcare system and most advanced technologies in the world. That's ended and here comes the "CHANGE" all the liberals wanted. Regulating healthcare is not allowing our free enterprise system work and the government can't run a business. Look at the Postal system. Everything our leaders touch, turns to Sh..!

OBAMACARE is another Terd!
Greatest healthcare system and most advanced technologies...

For those who could afford it. The rest can go die in a ditch. Go USA!

Oh, they could be going down and the usual suspects would still gripe about it because they hate Obama.

Correct, however rate increases are typically within the bounds of standard cost of living increases. This year my premium went up 35% which is way beyond normal.

Meh,

I ran the numbers for someone making $14000 a year. Deductible was $7000 and $150 per month. These people are not going to get insurance when they need that money to pay for housing and food. Most will simply pay the $95 penalty and walk into emergency rooms like they currently do and get free healthcare.

Simple financial calculations were not done by the government.

Simply not true, my premium increases have never been even close to the standard cost of living, Do you actually buy your own policy or participate in an employer plan. I have my own business, so I've been paying the full cost of my family policy for over 10 years and I can tell you that premiums have increased substantially each year during that time period.
