  • How will it not? My insurance has already gone up and I am sure it will go up more. Insurance companies have to take people with preexisting conditions and they can not impose lifetime limits anymore. Costs are going to sky rocket. Which is part of the plan. It makes private insurance unaffordable so people will be forced into the public option. And through that option you will not get great care because tests and procedures will be rationed to save money. And now that more people will qualify for medicaid doctors and pharmacies are refusing to take more patients. I know a lady who just lost her husband and went to sign up for medicaid or medicare (I forget which one) and she was told there is a waiting list and they gave her a number. What the heck is that about? In the mean time she has to pay for all her medications and supplies and she can't afford it. This whole system is screwed up. And it's getting worse.

  • Keep calling it Obamacare and I'm going to keep using the term teabaggers.
    Premiums and out of pocket costs will not go up because of health care reform.
