And that's a lot better than the UNLIMITED out-of-pocket maximum they have to pay now, if they can't afford to buy insurance at all.




    I *love* watching you guys fume today.
    It was certain someone was going to fume today. The real problem was so many thought they knew what the answer would be. I asked a few early on what if they were wrong? Few answered then.

    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.

    If you're freaking out about the Affordable Care Act, then I suggest that Poland might not be to your liking:

    Now that my insurance company has me locked in as a customer, what is it that prevents them from raising their rates?

    The last refuge consumers have against monopolistic pricing is that, difficult though it may be, one can technically go without the good or service. But if you have both a monopolistic pricing scenario AND the IRS standing over you telling you to pay, what keeps the insurance companies from jacking their rates further?

    Again with the biggest tax to hit the middle class! Where do you guys get this stuff?

The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    Not liberal math at all....just right-winger inability to comprehend.
    So 4 + 4 +1 equates to 1/2 and 1/2. You must be the poster boy for public education.

    How does your insurance company have you locked in any more than they did yesterday?
