    Medicaid is half of that number or less. This is just year one. Numbers will continue to expand in future years.

    Bull crap. Of the new Medicaid enrollees, only 2 M so far were not previously on Medicaid in recent year. And of the enrollees on the exchanges, at best, we will only have 1 M who did not have insurance prior. And that is a stretch because those without insurance prior are not accustomed to paying a monthly bill.

    A dirty little secret about premiums for Obamacare. It may not reflect in the premiums, but some insurance companies are seriously revamping their payments to providers.
    Example: prescription are bing denied payment or the amount prescribed drugs being reduced.
    I am currently taking chemo and have been for a few years. The blood work was being drawn at the providers clinic, however I now have to go to some orher place for the blood work and pay an additional copay for the blood work, which raises my cost, then have to wait a couple of days before going to another location for treatment.
    It was told to me that my insurance company was not the only one doing this and some companies were now denying maintenance drugs for the treatment of cancer.
    Hallejuah, we now have the health care the libs are in love with.
    Is everybody happy???????

    The legislation should be amended to refer to it as the UNAFFORDABLE HEALTH CARE ACT.

    Meanwhile, the eHealth link show average premiums have dropped another $8 in the week since this thread was started. That's going in the wrong direction for you guys who want to see those premiums go up...

    It's nice to hear, but it won't continue. The insurance companies are saying that the low rate of exchange purchases will assure higher premiums in the future.

    Higher deductibles and higher copays will more than offset any perceived change in lower premiums.
    It is now projected Obamacare will add over 2 trillion to cost of healthcare in the next 10 years.

    That's designed to happen when Barry hits the road. Convenient if you ask me. But the tax money collected from that extortion law will all be funneled into the DMC doe their re-election campaign/s funds.

    That is the whole the 'extortion' part this extortion SCAM tax/law.
