    Insurers predict 100% to 400% Obamacare rate explosion

    Choo-Choo!


    Internal cost estimates from 17 of the nation's largest insurance companies indicate that health insurance premiums will grow an average of 100 percent under Obamacare, and that some will soar more than 400 percent, crushing the administration's goal of affordability... The 17 companies include Aetna, Blue Cross Blue Shield and Kaiser Foundation.

    The report found that individuals will face "premium increases of nearly 100 percent on average, with potential highs eclipsing 400 percent. Meanwhile, small businesses can expect average premium increases in the small group market of up to 50 percent, with potential highs over 100 percent."...


    Train Wreck's a-coming. Hold on to your hats.

    Well, if Obamacare sets a floor, obviously they would raise the premiums because the market forces aspect of pricing become distorted.

    We neeed to have UHC. We already have the most expensive healthcare in the world. The system we have now is proven not to work. 17 of the nations largest insurance companies should have worried about this long ago.

    Why? Where is the "Right to Healthcare" laid out, mak? It's a Privilege, not a right. Never has been and never should be.

    The only reason what we have is too expensive is government. Insurance companies are so regulated they can't provide basic coverage. They "have" to cover crap like sex change operations, and the med profession runs so scared of being sued they waste enormous resources on tests. But then that is your plan right? Ruin it with govt to force people to pay for more govt!

    A well working society can't have 20% of its population unable to afford healthcare anymore than it can have 15% of its population unemployed.

    There is no "right" to healthcare. We dont provide healthcare to eachother because it is a right, we do it because we are civilized and refuse to allow someone to die without healthcare when it could be provided. The problem now is we provide that care, but in the least efficent means possible. I have never argued healthcare was a right, it isnt.

    This is not true. So not true I am not sure I want to go thru it. As I explained on another thread recently legal concerns are less than 1% (way less) and I dont think there are enough sex change operations to cause us to have the most expenseive healthcare in the world.

    A well working society can't have 47% of it's population shielded from federal income taxes either, but that doesn't seem to bother many people.
