Much cheaper, much better, much lower deductibles. It is amazing what you can do when you do research. Change is never easy especially for people who believe SS and Medicare are such great programs.
    When you "opted out" did they still take $100 out of your SS check? Are you saying your insurance is not Medicare affiliated, such as a PPO? This is a real question.

    do your sources not have a decidedly 'conservative'(read republican) lean? no, i do not accept your 'sources', as they are biased , and i believe them to be nothing more than propaganda by an organization with an agenda ...now i'll give you a chance con, admit that your sources are biased, and admit that you understand why people have a problem with them...

    I asked you a question, what sources do you accept as being credible? Numbers are accurate and came from the U.S. Treasury Dept. data so still waiting. What sources do you believe?

    Yes, I know, the WSJ is another Conservative publication. Guess no source that doesn't spout your opinion as fact isn't going to be acceptable to you

    Health Costs and History - WSJ.com
    This is the problem, if a MSM source does not want this information to be widely known then they simply omit it. Most media bias is not in the reporting of erroneous information, that is too easy to be challenged; instead, they prefer to use "bias by omission" - allowing morons to assert that you have no proof without using "biased" sources.

    All sources have a bias but the one thing no source can change is actual data. Now answer the question, what source do you believe? Provide me the data from the source of your choice showing actual costs of Medicare vs. projected costs?

    OMG! Can you really be that dishonest? Just answer the question!!!! "What sources are acceptable to you?"

    Good grief!

    If we can say that sources like Heritage, or WSJ (opinion page), or WaTimes are leaning to the right, then it still leaves you to tell us what sources that you would find "credible".... But you can't do that, because you know damned well that WaPo, NYTimes, McClatchy, Gannet papers, CBS, ABC, NBC, CNN, MSNBC (Centers for American Progress) ALL are lean left, to severely biased.

    So out with it randal, who used to say he was a conservative, and never was, tell us what sources do you want to see?

    and data is open to individual interpretation, a concept you have failed to grasp.

    Then please interpret the data for me, the Wall Street journal data that came from actual costs and Treasury Data? I know this is really hard for you but original costs vs. actual costs today seem to say that the projections were way off and SS and Medicare cost more than intended. Interpret those results differently for us?

    Maybe randal can jump in the way back machine and go back to 2010 for the beginning of the CBO 'adjustments' to the cost of Obamacare....

    The director of the Congressional Budget Office said Tuesday that the health care reform legislation would cost, over the next ten years, $115 billion more than previously thought, bringing the total cost to more than $1 trillion.
    The revised figure is due to estimated costs to federal agencies to implement the new health care reform bill – such as administrative expenses for the Internal Revenue Services and the Department of Health and Human Services — and the costs for a "variety of grant and other program spending for which specified funding levels for one or more years are provided in the act."

    CBO: Health Care Bill Will Cost $115 Billion More Than Previously Assessed - ABC News
    That was that darned right wing source ABC News....

    Better sit down, because you are in for a “shock”: ObamaCare will cost more than previously thought.
    The Congressional Budget Office today released an analysis of discretionary spending in the law, and found that those costs will “probably exceed” $115 billion over 10 years.
    At a stroke, that erases almost all of ObamaCare’s $143 billion in budget savings based off rushed, incomplete CBO projections given just before the decisive House vote in March.
    Of course, that original forecast also assumed politically poisonous Medicare cuts and numerous other budget tricks. But, continuing to set those issues aside, the CBO suggests even its surplus forecast may prove ephemeral.

    CBO Hikes ObamaCare Cost Estimate By $115 Billion
    But not to fear...if we repeal it we can always get randal's buddies out there for a good protest...
