But, that really doesn't change the discussion, though. Think of all the money you could have saved in years past by not having to pay for insurance. That would have been more than enough to cover co-pays, deductibles, etc. The insurance that you signed up for just a few weeks/months prior to the official diagnosis would then cover the rest.

In fact, he promised it would be cheaper after his reformDec. 1 (Bloomberg) -- The Obama Administration hailed a congressional report that predicted most Americans will pay no more for insurance coverage under health-care legislation being debated in the U.S. Senate.
On average, 134 million Americans insured through large employers will see no rise in premiums and may pay 3 percent less than they would if Congress failed to pass a health-care overhaul plan, the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office said yesterday. Subsidies also will lower costs as much as 59 percent for 18 million people buying their own insurance.

I really like that you tried though. I guess it's what any good obama supporter should do... Kind of how Boo still insists that new taxes aren't being added by the reform.
Also, in the long run, it may well end up cheapter. We'll see.
But we do know it was going up before. Cost is but one element of reform.
