    “Individuals buying health insurance on their own will see their premiums tumble next year in New York State as changes under the federal health care law take effect, state officials are to announce on Wednesday.” NYTimes

    Uh-oh. They’re talkin’ a FIFTY PERCENT drop off. How kin the Glen Gold Rush Standard Fox ‘News’ team spin this one? Think dirt? Dirt and lies? Maybe they’ll just talk louder and ignore the truth, eh? That usually works.

    One state does not the nation make.

    NYS might be lucky in that it will see premiums go down, but elsewhere people face the prospects of their premiums going up due to such matters as “people being forced to buy more expensive policies in order to be compliant” and “companies dropping insurance coverage, thereby forcing the individual to pay out-of-pocket.”

    You may want to do some comparative reading. Try this story.

    Now, I know you hate a conservative opinion but still one must wonder why the oh so perfect law has been delayed over and over by President Obama, why “exemptions” have been given to “special” groups (like unions), why big business gets the breaks and the individual is stuck with adherence.

    When do you open your eyes to the truth?

    The Republicans have two choices: sit back and watch Obamacare tank, or come up with a better idea (and the Ryan plan will bankrupt us faster than Obamacare, as those reading my previous posts know). Republican “leaders” seem to believe that allowing the entire health care system to collapse will buy them votes.(“Country First”, indeed.) I submit that policy will cost them more votes than if they come up with something better, as there will be many who will not appreciate their willingness to see their constituents suffer for political gain.
    The only viable alternative is single payer, and they don’t seem willing to embrace that. The only question left is which party the American people will be more unhappy with when nothing is done to fix the problem.

    Well, then you’d better stay way up in the Senate and House galleries when the Republicans are at work.
