Then our test scores will rise.”

“Well,why does the legislation ALLOW them to do it? Why does it allow them to up the price to whatever they want?Its Obamas fault.”

Dragonwinds Spirit on Nov 3, 2013 at 01:08:04

“Maybe you should read your own words and think about that for a bit. It is NOT president Obama's fault that they are allowed to jack up the prices. If you wanted that kind of control over insurance companies what you are suggesting is that health care be 100% nationalized and taken over totally by the government, putting insurance companies out of business. You know as well as I do a certain money grubbing party on the right would NEVER have allowed that, even though it is the more logical method of insuring everyone has proper health care.”

“Well our new policy is going to cost us 1000/month,not a piddly amount.Its practically someone's salary at Walmart.The good thing is that if we do get sick its much less out of pocket cost.”

calicopenn on Oct 31, 2013 at 10:17:41

“Is that the "new" policy from your current provider? Have you done any shopping around? Have you gone to your state's exhange website to see what is offered there? If you're in a state that doesn't have their own exchange, have you gone to the federal website? Have you checked into other policies your current provider might have?”

“People who complain about about a ACA policy which is not subsidized and costs around $1,000, make enough money to afford it. The combined household income has a thrash hold of $98,000. If you are in that income bracket, most regular insurance policies cost that much anyway.”

“The ACA limits the profits insurance companies can take from premiums. The amount that insurers pay out must be 80% of what the insured pay in. 85% for larger groups.”

“Well,I'm not a supporter of the republicans,but I'm facing what this article is talking about.
We've been paying for our own insurance all along.our kid this last year has been incredibly sick.They told us they are discontinuing our policy because it doesn't conform with the affordable healthcare act.If we want something similar but with even crappier coverage than the already crappy coverage we have they are tripling our premiums.In the meantime the state exchange provides even more limited coverage and an abysmal choice of doctors.So the tea bags actually had a point.”

“It's sad, but true.

All the GOP wanted to do, before this bill was passed, was to READ IT and discuss the details and roll out a real plan.
