    This is what happens when your focus is only hate and disruption and not actually trying to make things better.
    LOL. The Republicans didn't create the problems the Democrats did. They are the one's that have prevented people from getting jobs that provide insurance, they are the one's that have forced companies to quit offering health insurance, they are the ones that have caused health insurance costs to rise outside the norms, they are the ones that have reduced peoples income because employers have been forced to shorten workers hours. They are the ones that have caused health insurance companies to quit offering health insurance in some places.

    Naw, naw. The Democrats own every bit of this disaster called Obamacare. They were told and warned it was a disaster before passing it and they went ahead anyway. If they can't fix it (it's impossible) they need to do what's good for America and trash it.

    Ask Obama, he's the one that pushed that idea.

    only as a consequnce of not getting deal made in the previous debt ceiling debate.

    the sequester is hurting people far more by arbitrallially cutting funding for government programs.

    Who pushed for it? Obama. Other options were available. If someone is getting hurt because of it, the finger must be pointed to Obama.

    Thanks and the remaining 45 states are screwed, but that's good for you - that's how you socialist role - take from me and give to you. Thanks for your service, I suggest you look harder at the VA and maybe for the good of the rest of us you could move. I did.

Even the farm bureau put me in touch with some company that wanted $2,000 a month with a pre-existing condition clause (USI Effinity). I live in a town where it's all farms, and every other farmer I know has no insurance. Since leaving the Air National Guard and becoming involved with the USAF Civil Air Patrol (I wanted to learn to fly), I lost my Tricare from Uncle Sam. I'm sure if I was in dire straits I could probably go to a VA hospital for care, but I don't think there is one within 150 miles of me. Obamacare will be a godsend to Central and Upstate NY.

    What do you mean your rates won't go down? Wasn't it not you spouting your beloved new rates? I'll have to go back to look - hate to imagine you calling yourself a liar.

    Again Pappa john's meltdown is ignored and an 'I am told' undocumented story about what happened in what unnamed states has full faith and credit in the CON world.

    Now I live in Oklahoma, I doubt my insurance rates will go down, but what is covered might improve. I do know no Californian is going to be paying a slim dime on my bills so why all that noise is being puked up is beyond me.

    But I do understand the need to create a strawman position to argue against when the real facts can't be discussed....

    Nope there it is; wow; here you say your rates have gone down thanks to the beloved ofailure you love so much, and yet in the last post you said your rates may not go down? Hmmm...and so what am I to believe - well you can imagine there is one thing I believe for certain - that' a lot of huey has been written here that is worthless to read.

    We now have a different company with riders, a dental plan, and a vision care thing.

    343 a month.

    You don't take the gubmint's word without question, why do you take Humana's as if it is the 11th commandment????

    Like Pappa John's and that Florida franchise owner of I think it was Denny's.... They claim one thing, but simple math shows they are just being petty, partisan asses....

    take a chill pill Phil. What I said is my wife and i had humana and it had a for crap premium, poor coverage. We looked around for a bit and found a MUCH better policy with a MUCH lower premium and far BETTER coverage.

    (psssstttt... the new ACA policies have not kicked in yet, my rate and policy are locked in for 6 months and then my wife and i will decide what to do.)

    You REALLY are clueless about healthcare insurance, do you have any?

    My point is Humana started us off a few years ago with an OUTstanding rate and we accepted a high deductible- because we can afford to pay out of pocket the 5K. But each quarter for the next two years seemed to be a rate increase, which they claimed was due to our insured pool, till we had enough and started shopping around.

    when it comes to imagining other folks, so many CON partisans seem far more intent on that than actually seeing others in the real world.

    A pretty sad CON game- where does it say the new policy has ANYTHING to do with the ACA which has NOT GONE INTO EFFECT yet????

    We got the new far better than what Humana had policy 3, THREE, months ago.

    So Denial as the mailing address and CONvoluted thinking... for some ACA can't come soon enough...

    Do note you can't bring that laser eye and keen mind to focus on how unsubstaniated claims Humana, Faux Noise, and one policy holder have made....

    (classic petty partisan hackery some would say)
