FORBES: Obamacare Reduces Health Care Insurance Premiums

http://www.forbes.com/sites/rickungar/2013/05/24/unexpected-...

Upon reviewing the data, I was indeed shocked by the proposed premium rates—but not in the way you might expect. The jolt that I was experiencing was not the result of the predicted out-of-control premium costs but the shock of rates far lower than what I expected—even at the lowest end of the age scale.

Can we now abandon the right-wing hate of Obamacare (even though gov't mandate insurance or controlled healthcare is bad)?

What say you now?

That article is a pile of junk.

Healthcare premiums are expected to rise by between 30% and 100% in 2014 as a result of Obamacare. It varies a lot by state.

Around an extra $300bn is expected to be spent on Healthcare in 2014.
Someone has got to pay for all that extra coverage.
Almost all of it will be paid for by the middle class.

Obamacare brings with it lots of tax increases, mostly on products and companies.
These tax increases will be passed on to the consumer.
It is in effect a back door $100bn a year tax increase on the middle class.
The government are taking their cut of that extra $300bn.

Even the UNIONS have started complaining.

The Affordable Care Act should be retitled the American Job Killer Act.
It will cost millions of American jobs over the next couple of years and ensure a deep recession in 2014.

I'll believe it when I see

I'll believe it when I see it. Sort of like your first year with satellite TV advertised at 19.95 a month...then the next thing you know, you have a $100 a month bill.

And, how much is the government kicking in? Will our children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren be picking up the tab for our health insurance?

As a small biz owner, I have a high deductible insurance policy and a HSA. My insurance is up over 200% in the last 3 years. But there is only like 2% inflation you know!

We'll soon find out how this plays out...that's if our monetary system can hold together.

As an insurance broker that

As an insurance broker that broker's health insurance, I can say that Obamacare has increased premiums SUBSTANTIALLY. What they aren't telling you is the price beyond the monthly premiums.

DON'T FORGET ABOUT ALL THE WONDERFUL MISC. FEES

that won't be found within the premiums....a veritable VAT FOR HEALTH INSURANCE NOW!

that's good to know. We need

that's good to know. We need to discuss this and make sure all information is in to understand this new "law".

The guys at the metal shop,

The guys at the metal shop, now have to do all these tests before they get the coverage, they also paid more for it. They didn't used to have to pay for a doctors visit, now they do. I wish I could remember the numbers but I cant sorry
