    That would not be bad thing, not everyone needs to go. I have no degree and make as much as engineers with our company

    Yes, some wIll rise, as there is always more than one way to do anything, but the gap between haves and have nots will grow. That may be worse than what we have now.

    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 the government stopped subsidizing colleges and students very few people would go to school. It would cost a fortune. That way the people who truly deserve a college education will get one instead of making it a right that everyone is entitled. That leads to occupy wall street.

    Lots of people claim that people would rather collect welfare rather than work a job. Offer the people on welfare two choices: A job making $100,000 per year or a welfare check for $10,000 and see what happens. I bet they won't be so lazy any more.

    Offer them these three choices: A job making $15,080, no job at all or a welfare check for $10,000, see which one they chose.

    I think people collecting government goodies are smart rather than lazy but I guess smart and lazy do go hand and hand.

    Jesus Joe, a percentage point or two is not "much less".... Our costs are going up with this turd, and we have many more people. So, you're just plain wrong here.

    You? All by yourself? Just kidding. Do you also plan on paying for ss, and Medicare all by yourself too? Look these programs are wealth redistribution, you will never cover all your own costs.

    it's possible to pay for all of it. however, as i've stated in previous posts, it will require a rethink of our national priorities, as well as new revenue streams.

    That's amazing! You have ESP, and can read everyone else's insurance policies!

    ....Or you are making unfounded assumptions, in a vain attempt to claim that the insurance people are being kicked off of - which the vast majority of them liked - isn't that big of a loss in order to cover the cognitive dissonance spawned by the damages of Obamacare.

    But Hey! Good luck selling that line in 2014!

    Clearly, you had a cheap policy that did a reasonable job taking care of normal healthcare needs and it failed to take care of major needs.
    Or he had a cheap policy that did a good job of taking care of major needs by letting him take care of normal needs. You know, sort of how insurance is supposed to work.

    Clearly that cheap old policy cannot provide the standard of benefits required by Obamacare (which people need whether their short sighted minds realize it now or not), so the policy must be changed to specify new terms that meet the standard, and at a new rate.
    The People Are Too Stupid To Make Decisions For Themselves And Require Benevolent Overlords To Make Those Decisions For Them. Big Brother Knows What Insurance Is Best For You.

    ....if only there was some kind of public health insurance available for those who couldn't afford their own. We could call it "Medical-Aid" or "Medic-Help" or "Medic-Aid", or something....
