Get ready for higher health insurance costs.

"Coverage continues Thursday of a new study which predicts premiums will rise for individuals purchasing health insurance next year because of the Affordable Care Act. Many sources focus specifically on the acknowledgment of this reality by HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, made Tuesday. The White House pushed back Wednesday, but still several cable news programs took the opportunity to skewer the Administration and its healthcare law.        In continuing coverage, The Hill  (3/28, Viebeck) "Healthwatch" blog reports that in a new study, "the Society of Actuaries predicted Wednesday that insurers will pay 32 percent more on average for medical claims under healthcare reform, as more patients enter the insurance market and take up higher-value benefits." This could "potentially rais[e] premiums for some consumers."        Similarly, Modern Healthcare  (3/28, Block, Subscription Publication) reports, "As health insurers prepare to submit 2014 premium rates to state regulators next month, some stakeholders are questioning whether the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act will be affordable after all." The "worry is that some of the mandates in the law could drive up the cost of coverage so much that many consumers may choose to pay a penalty for failing to get coverage rather than pay steep insurance premiums." As the article explains, some of these concerns "highlighted in a study released Tuesday by the Society of Actuaries," which found "that the cost of medical claims, one of the key factors driving insurance premiums, will rise an average of 32% nationwide by 2017 as a result of an expected change in the individual market composition."        In a related account, The Hill  (3/28, Viebeck) "Healthwatch" blog reports that the Obama Administration "acknowledged Tuesday that some people could see their premiums rise under the healthcare reform law." HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius "told reporters that 'there may be a higher cost associated with getting into that market' where 'folks will be moving into a really fully insured product for the first time.'"  The Hill notes that Sebelius' comment "was among the first from the Obama administration to reveal a degree of uncertainty about the impact of the law on insurance premiums." Sebelius' "concession on premiums put the White House on the defensive. When asked about Sebelius's remarks, a spokesman for President Obama said healthcare costs are falling thanks to the reform law.""

Two Jehovahs Witnesses knocked on my door this morning; I told them to go away. Why do they think they have the right to impose themselves on others? You never hear of a Jewish person knocking on doors and trying to convert people. Next time, I'm calling the police. Fix their wagon, maybe they're casing the neighborhood for future robberies, see if someone comes to the door.
If they went away, then they are not imposing anything, dummy.

Silly to accuse the Kennedy's of what the American Public did. The whole 'Camelot' thing and all were very popular with Americans.

The President is more than a bit like American Royalty. Americans seem to admire Royal Families. See Princess Diana and the new Princess Kate and see the headlines and gossip they generate

Far better than the ones who wished to be dictators:

"“If this were a dictatorship it would be a heck of a lot easier... as long as I'm the dictator. Hehehe.”

Speaking of royals, I've wanted to post this since last night.
Watching the History Channel's documentary about the 24 hours following the Kennedy assassination, it became painfully apparent that the Kennedys also thought of themselves as "royals" in the White House.
When the Secret Service rushed Johnson to Air Force One after it was confirmed Kennedy was dead, Robert Kennedy and the "Kennedy people" couldn't accept his presence because that was the "Kennedy plane".
Robert Kennedy made the transition as hellish as possible for Johnson refusing to see the country and the continuity of the transition of power coming first over the Kennedy name.
This was mentioned several times during the documentary.
Clinton also acted like he was royalty, not only during his time in the White House, but even after a new president was sworn in. Remember the media making fun of him? Instead of getting on the helicopter and flying away, he was inspecting the troops and having rallies. The media were trying not to laugh when one of them said, "Does he know he's not the president anymore?"
Why is it only Republicans talk about their time in office as temporary and a tremendous sense of responsibility to serve?
The chaos created after the assassination on the part of the Kennedy's was actually appalling.

FACT: Finland has some of the worst childhood type 1 diabetes ratios in the world.

Scientists are studying the dirt thereof (that's right-the DIRT, as in of the ground!!) for further explanation.

or reasons that no one has been able to identify, Finland has the world’s highest rate of Type 1 diabetes among children. Out of every 100,000 Finnish kids, 64 are diagnosed annually with the disease, in which the body’s immune system declares war on the cells that produce insulin. Type 1 diabetes is usually diagnosed in children, adolescents and young adults.

The disease rate wasn’t always so high. In the 1950s, Finland had less than a quarter of the Type 1 diabetes it has today. Over the past half-century, much of the industrialized world has also seen a proliferation of the once rare disease, along with other autoimmune disorders such as rheumatoid arthritis and celiac disease. Meanwhile, such afflictions remain relatively rare in poorer, less-developed nations.

Even though seeing the actual footage of the fatal blow to President Kennedy's head and recalling the country's grief during that time was very sad, one couldn't come away from that History Channel documentary without feeling a certain amount of animosity towards Robert Kennedy and the "Kennedy people" who surrounded the Kennedys.

The History Channel doesn't lean right or left, but the "royal" attitude of the Kennedys was made very clear throughout the documentary.

As sad as it was for Jacqueline Kennedy who was the epitomy of grace and dignity, one couldn't come away from that documentary without remembering Kennedy's infamous womanizing and infedilty towards her either.

You're preaching to the choir, dear, we all already know that you people aren't really at home anywhere. For goodness sakes you put on makeup to use the john at the bus station!

Have you ever been to the White House, sweetie? It was intended to be pretty grand, and it sort of succeeded in an eighteenth century sort of way. But, frankly, as a house it's pretty timid and remarkably small. No real chance any modern leader might mistake himself or herself for a king or queen in these times.

Hard to believe.

Most, if not all, of the GOPigs on this thread are collecting Medicare and Social Security.

Makes their talk of self reliance ring a bit false.

See Ed and Nobraina for evidence of this denial of reality.
