    They did too. It is another example of the lies perpetuated by your hero. They walked through exactly what the family (man and his wife) did, saw the estimate and then showed the exact amount on TV. But it was on CNN so it is not to be trusted.

    So all those figures for specific plans offered by specific companies are wrong? Where do you get the right figures?

    Your numbers from Kaiser are for job-based plans not plans from the open market so it's a bad data point. You get the right numbers from signing up on an exhange and buying coverage. Hypotheticals from either side are just that...hypothetical.

    Red stated did less on the issue so now they have further to go to reach fed mandates.

    Having to do more for more, is the problem.

    Turning down billions of our tax money coming home, isn't bright either and why the state ends up on the hook...

    When you put in your birthdate, social security #, address. They have to underwrite each applicant. They just can't discriminate due to pre-existing conditions. The #s people are getting back are typically not in the ballpark of the original "estimate" unless one happens to fit the exact criteria of the example used. That is what all the blowback is from and a big reason why very few are signing up

    Or, viewed from a different angle, having too many federal mandates is the problem.

    No, it came from Heritage, CNN, and an unrelated news article unless you're referring to another post of yours other than the one with three links.
