    Anecdotal evidence is not a trend, when actual evidence points to the contrary.

    I do find it funny how to call someone a liberal because they disagree with your premise.

    I know a lib when I read one by their attitude. You are a young lib that won't answer the question in the OP and the reason is you don't want to admit daddy buys your insurance or that you will take the fine.

    The big Constitutional complaint has been you don't get to make a decision. You have no choice, you do as you are told. You will have insurance or you will pay a fine like a common criminal.

    This isn't your fathers America any more. It's now "Do as I say, not as I do America."

    That's what 52% of Americans wanted.

    First of all, you're making a lot of assumptions about the enthusiasm for Obama in my generation.

    Second of all, not wanting to get bled hardly counts as "going along with his agenda." It's policy now, dude.

    And to answer your question, I don't know. I'm currently on employer insurance. It's terrible. Not because of my employer -- they've truly done their best -- but because insurance companies don't want to give decent rates to young people, especially if you don't have any kids they can bleed you for.

    And Obamacare is exactly the same. While I will be able to go into the market if I wish to, from what I can see, it's the same story. The insurance is crap, and it doesn't cost any less. But hey, at least I'm not in the South, where it would cost me a lot more.

    America has a record of trampling the most potentially productive demographic in the country for the last few decades. That doesn't seem to be stopping now.

    And to answer your question, I don't know. I'm currently on employer insurance. It's terrible. Not because of my employer -- they've truly done their best -- but because insurance companies don't want to insure young healthy people, especially if you don't have any kids they can bleed you for.

    If your employer insurance is terrible it will not meet the new standards and you will be forced onto obamacare.

    It isn't terrible because of price. It's terrible because of coverage.

    My insurance is considered affordable under Obamacare, and I will be able to stay with it if I want to. We have already had the briefing on this.

    I am losing my catastrophic insurance because the coverage does not meet obamacare standards so your coverage must not be all that bad. Has your insurance changed in any way? Are your premiums going up at all?

    talk about childish snobs. You are the epitome of a terrible partisan, sawyer.
    Did you make this poll so you could bully all the young'uns about having decent insurance or what?

    well aren't you asking for it?

    You're calling people stupid libs and childish snobs and little babies.

    Get out of my business, dammit, you don't know me.
