    I'll look for it later, as I'm about to leave for awhile, but PBS put out a report showing little of these drops are actually related to ACA, but the normal yearly drops that occur often, and have occurred over the years. But, companies are more than willing to let you blame ACA.
    In other words, f*** you, its better for the group, because (gov't funded) PBS says so.

    Well, if it's discussed in your presence, Fisher, be prepared for lots of dumbass comments. Most people don't know **** about it. You, on the other hand, know more than the average bear.

    There's certain relatives we don't discuss those matters around, but when it's just my mom, stepdad, brother, and my stepdad's brother's family, we can talk about them without throwing yams at each other, even when we disagree.

    Not sure those are comparable. That crappy car is no good if it doesn't do the job.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    No, PBS said the companies were doing this anyway and have been doing it for years. Not that because it is better for the group.

    And PBS is quite independent. And more accurate than Fox.

    Exactly why was my old plan 'crap'?
    Because they said so, which is why they needed to change it! It's for our own good, you know! Millions still won't be covered, but we'll worry about that later. Right now, we just need to get this great new plan in place as quickly as we can!

    Booyah! Pay up folks, I guessed it.

    It does "the job" but it may require the user to pay for more "out of pocket" maintenance costs. The idea behind these "better" policies is that they cost more in premiums yet have lower added "out of pocket" costs - that is wonderful if you get premium subsidies and perhaps even a bit better in the few years that you need lots of expensive medical care but, on balance, you will pay more in the majority of years when little or no medical care is used.

    My advice? Keep voting for them, and you'll get more of the same.
