    What the hell are you talking about; that's exactly what is happening.

    Wow, to both the raising of your premiums and that you have only been working since 99.

    For the last couple decades I've been self-employed - which means I pay for my own healhcare insurance. Every two to three years the premium would rise 10 to 20 dollars a month. But since Obamacare, every six months it has risen.

    i blame the artificially low supply of doctors and the fact that health care is an essential service with inelastic demand.

    I thought you would WANT less Medicare in the US......who knew you are for it?


    Sure it is and pigs are going to fly of the WH, so you'd better notify the Secret Service of that fact.

    It is exactly what Roberts said. If you don't buy insurance, you get taxed. That's it in a nutshell.

    Government is no more inept than anyone else. I run into a lot in the private sector who are far more inept, and yet they stay in business (one more talking to someone in India and I'm going eight grade).

    And frankly, the government has done some things very well. The world really is better today, and government holds some of the credit for that (not all by any means). It has really just become cliche and overused to complain about government competence. And we can hold them accountable. We may not choose to, but we can.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Medical care is not perfectly inelastic.
    Generally, only some medical care is inelastic.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    I wonder if Chief Justice Roberts was intimidated by liberal threats to delegitimize the Supreme Court? That's the new meme.

    And there you are without a clue to the mechanism that you are whining about.

    Prove me wrong if you have the sand.
