    My premiums will double when my current plan expires, but I don't consider myself "screwed" by it.

    obamacare was designed to fail, it just wasn't designed to fail this fast. The plan was to get everyone or at least lots of people used to very cheap or even free healthcare and then when the system collapsed of its own weight the pump would be primed to switch to single payer.

Now, is the entire premium more, or just the part that you pay? If the entire premium is more, why would your employer have chosen it?

    I was mostly interested in how it affects families and small business's.

    Have you read it?

    That's ideal. We have two simple ways to tackle this problem:

    1) simply deny care to those who can't pay.

    or

    2) UHC.

    We get complicated and convoluted laws because as a nation we too often reject the easier path, and then complain because it's complicated. But UHC would solve a lot of problems.

    I don't select any of the answers because I don't think ACA is perfect. It's a step. I accept it as just that, a step in the right direction. So, if you change the nuggets and fires to To Steak and Lobster, I'd vote for that.
