“I take my dog to our winter home every year. An 8 to 11 hour day with 3 legs. Never had problem with TSA or the airlines (Usually USAirways and Cape Air). Sorry you had such a hard time. I do book our trips with longer layovers on at least one of the legs, so that I have enough time for a leisurely potty stop.”

“We should have had plenty of time, but the extensive full body searches ate it all up and then some. Once they let me go but then called me back because they forgot to check my laptop.....that extra few minutes caused me to miss the connection. Grrr. The only bright spot was that American upgraded me to first class after I got stuck in Chicago and that was the only comfortable part of the trip. We were starved and all shared some eggs and we actually had enough room.”

“LOL. When one references one's own humility, one is anything but humble - or mannerly. It's interesting that you accuse liberals of making personal attacks in defending the champion of personal attacks. (I read her Facebook page). Regardless, I am able to successfully argue any of Palin's points, because I use facts and not dogma and sound bites. Please tell me one time when she apologized for making false statements or baseless derogatory remarks, and, as promised, I'll stop laughing. (If you're stuck, let's start for blaming President Obama for moving "in God We Trust" to the edge of coins.”

This is called manners.

Palin speaks her mind about politics, you and mast liberals do not agree so you take to making personal attacks. Is it because you have no ability to argue your point of view?”

“Yes, I lost mine too. Hence the need to go to the exchange. Sorry you're probably in an area with no competition and/or high health care costs. It will even out. The market, like nature, abhors a vacuum.”

natal plum on Dec 2, 2013 at 10:52:33

“Yeah, incredibly the exchanges here are populated by very insurers who are dumping all their single policy holders. Blue Cross and its various entities (Blue Cross Independence; Blue Cross, Keystone, etc. etc.) are heavily advertising their availability and signup seminars. Blue Cross was the first insurer to dump and discontinue all its group plans and coverages after obamacare was signed into law in 2010. The rationale they gave their subscribers in their group cancellation letters was that the young and the healthy would migrate to the "exchanges" and leave the groups populated with the old, sick and harder to insure (dregs) so theirfore they were cancelling my/our group coverage in favor of individual policies only.

Of course the individual policy rates were astronomically higher than our group coverage rate(s). In fact, the group policy was so comprehensive and so inexpensive that I don't believe the young and the healthy would leave the group only to pay MORE for individual coverage with higher deductible, less choices and less options. Why then were they cancelling group coverage? Because they could charge more. Oddly enough, many of the people who signed up with Blue Cross for individual plans and policies after losing their group plans and now being cancelled a SECOND time.

From what I've seen, the exchange rates for me in my age group start at 2.5 times what I was previously paying. I get no subsidies”

“First, the costs are not the same between group and individual. They are rated differently, and the larger the group, the better the discount they get. Second, premiums increased by an average of over 8% a year from 2001 to 2010. Only around 5% last year. Add to that the increase, especially of healthy Americans, in the risk pool, more people whose catastrophic illnesses will no longer be covered by you and me through taxes and higher provider charges and premiums, and the cost savings in other Obamacare mandates already in place which are exceeding savings goals, and your extra Obamacare deficit will even out.”

“You're comparing apples to oranges when comparing group vs direct bill policies. Regardless, I am skeptical of people who claim it was Obamacare that upped the rates drastically. You may want to look at a graph of health care costs that goes back 10 or 15 years. The bar shows a steady incline, with a small bump before Obamacare forced companies to rebate their overages. Compare it to projected charts and you'll see another small bump (as your caps, and other limitations were removed), followed by a steady, but smaller incline.”

realfloopyguy on Dec 1, 2013 at 11:36:53

“They are the cost of monthly insurance premiums whether in group or individual form. The subsidies and changes in the ACA caused price changes in both. My insurance - and millions more (my plan actually covers over a million people in the USA.) went up faster than normal due to ACA. I realize and stated that part of it was the normal increase we see every year, but over and above that was caused directly or indirectly by the ACA for my individual case and the other people in my group plan. We are still talking hundreds/thousands of dollars a year of an increase due to ACA on the average person. A 5% or 10% increase in the cost of insurance that costs $300 a month due to the ACA is still a large increase in real terms. They might be 'small bumps' but they still end up being money out of the pocket of most Americans every month.”

“I am not subsidized at all. My exchange premium and deductible are both seriously waaaaaaaaaaay higher for much worse coverage, than I had before. Seriously quite unaffordable. Of course I am one of the millions who LOST their coverage because of obamacare.”

“My insurance went up a lot since 2010. Part of it was normal increase, but most of it was due to the ACA. I get no subsidy and the total cost of my insurance went up about $240 a month. 33% of which I pay, and my employer shoulders the other 66%. Either way, that is $80 a month that democrats took directly out of my pocket more than 2010.”

“No, I didn't notice any such thing. In fact, I have no idea what you are talking about. I know that in my state, an insurance company can't pull a policy once it's approved by the state and offered to the public. I'm also not sure how you will "get the tax" on Jan 1 if your policy is in effect My understanding is that your tax would be reported on your 2013 taxes, typically done next winter, if you do not continue coverage.”
