    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.
    i thought we wouldn't even be able to access actual premiums until Oct 1 anyway

    Well for some petty partisan hacks a lack of even basic knowledge in no way forstalls believing any old crap Faux Noise puts out there.

    Like I said, if MSNBC did a fact lite crap piece claiming ACA would reduce costs and increase access those who suck up Faux Noise would howl in outrage...

    What is amazing is my insurance company has not sent me a notice of rate increase, but like I said I had a Humana policy and i didn't like the way they kept raising rates on a very simple high deductible policy.

    But hey, let's not let facts interfere with the ongoing CON game....

    I hear you. The ****storm of bad information that has rained down on everyone is mind-boggling, worse yet are those that stand out in the storm with their heads tilted back and their mouths wide open.

    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)

    So, if there are millions of examples you will have no problem producing 30 more.... which, you and I know you can not. So, I will settle for a single example that shows me that 10s of thousands are harmed.....

    Though real national healthcare would be the rose, we will have to settle for Obamacare for the time being. Let's call it a carnation. It smells pretty good!

    Best line I've heard for a while on Jon Stewart: "Obama pacer is republican's Spring Time For Hitler. Republicans only win if it fails. What they are afraid of is that we will like it."

    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.
