    I think you're being fed a load of malarkey, sorry.

    They didn't drop the carrier. They dropped the plan. There is a difference.
    Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.

    So, you have a different plan with the same carrier, are paying higher premiums, and you changed because of a $29 a year increase.

    Do I have it right now?

    Sort of. They dropped all of the plans at work and got new plans, and still higher premiums. Blue Cross said the increase was due to regulations on the INSURANCE industry which forced our company to seek different plans, even though they could have just dropped us altogether.

    I wonder why we haven't heard that one from the right wingers? That's what they've wanted all along! If premiums don't plummet now, then it would have to mean that their solution doesn't work.
    So was the individual mandate. See Romneycare.

    But if they admitted it, they'd have a hard time convincing everybody that they're against it.

    I find it hilarious that "Obamacare" was meant to be a derogatory term but President Obama uses it himself.

    What stop there and declare how Republicans want to kill all children.

    Good lord... can none of you EVER post a legitimate poll?

    No one ever thought it was a great idea. A republican invented it for goodness sakes. How good could it be?
    It was all we could get passed, and it is a hell of a lot better than 45,000 deaths per year.

    Since Obamacare has saved children, the meme does have some merit.

    Got it. The plan you had didn't qualify under Obamnycare, so you needed to have a new plan that covered what was mandated to be covered. The new plan cost a bit more in premiums. Your employer could have kept the old plan for another year, of course, but decided to be pro active.

    Plus, the old plan would have cost another $29 a year anyway, so why not change now? It makes sense from that perspective.
