  • Insurance costs will triple before the real truth is known about all this. It's already starting to come out, but many people are still caught up in the euphoria of victory. Insurance companies cannot pay for "free" colonscopies, mammograms, and other "preventative" tests without having to raise premiums. So many people who now have insurance will have to drop it because they will try to keep their homes rather than have insurance. Those people will be fined $2000 each year for failure to have insurance. All this is designed to put the private insurance companies out of business so that they can be labeled as being evil and heartless and raising premiums to be mean. Then the government will have to step in and provide the coverage as in single payer, which has been the goal from day one. By the time it all is seen by those who refuse to see, it will much, much too late. Some of us have known for a long time.

  • Amazing how everyone knows how things will go before the bill has been signed. This reeks of propaganda.

  • Are you kidding me? What do mean it's amazing that people know what's going to happen. There are people that their entire job to analyze and predict what will happen. Its simple cause and effect if you don't have the money to pay something you've promised you're going to default.
