The administration is proposing to extend a freeze on the income brackets at which seniors are liable for the higher premiums until 1 in 4 retirees has to pay. It wouldn't be the top 5 percent anymore, but the top 25 percent.

"Over time, the higher premiums will affect people who by today's standards are considered middle-income," explained Tricia Neuman, vice president for Medicare policy at the nonpartisan Kaiser Family Foundation. "At some point, it raises questions about whether Medicare premiums will continue to be affordable."

It's much more astonishing to me that the left is so astonished Obamacare is a disaster.

It will be this president's legacy.

This might put it into better perspective for RealDave.
Obamacare's main provisions are only a few months from full implementation and already moving through the economy like a "statutory disruptor beam".
Small businesses are trying to keep payrolls below 50 workers to remain exempt. Larger firms are trying to figure out how to convert more staff to part-time.
The WSJ reports many unions have soured on Obamacare complaining it will jack up their health plan costs.
The unknown is how many employees will lose company-sponsored insurance and, if there's an exodus from employer health plans and more workers end up on Obamacare exchanges, the program's cost will explode. The dumped workers and those now without policies may opt to pay the lower penalty than go on the exchanges.
If the young and healthy stay away, those left in the exchanges will be older and sicker pushing premiums higher and driving more people out.
The Society of Actuaries recently predicted that medical claim costs in the individual markets will shoot up an average of 32 percent.
If medical costs rise too quickly, the Independent Payments Advisory Board will begin cutting payments to Medicare providers reducing seniors' access to care. Also, officials will start cutting subsidies in the exchanges if their cost exceeds 0.5 percent of GDP.
If the number of people in the exchanges fall, the CBO said it will leave behind people with lower incomes or costlier health problems, or both — once again driving up premium prices and pushing more people out.
According to The NYT, even the White House is now telling officials it's unwise to tell consumers they could get health insurance that fits their budget.
Obamacare - a force-fed monstrosity - a train wreck beginning to unfold.
Watching the political fallout before the November 2014 elections will, however, be interesting.
He won't believe you. He lives in a libtard dreamworld. Actually he's looking for someone else to pay his employee's health insurance costs.

The disaster that's coming is already causing a lot of nightmares for democrats. It will go down in history as their and Obama's legacy.

Passing a 2700 page monstrosity without one republican on board, with the majority of Americans being against it, and the democrats not even knowing what's in it? Seriously?

This is what liberals are defending to their last breath?

Realtime Obamacare is a Disaster..The Congressional Budget Office while it will put 39 million people on insurance plans; it will drive off more than 23 million more from their existing plans and would still leave about 30 million uninsured!!

Ms Wheeler's son Ben was killed along with 19 other children and six staff when 20-year-old Adam Lanza opened fire at his elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut.

The address was broadcast on radio and released as a video online.

This week senators are due to debate new laws that will extend background checks to gun sales made at gun shows and over the internet.

The measures are the result of a bipartisan deal struck between Republican and Democrat senators last week.

Senators later voted to debate the legislation, but no new laws have yet been passed.

A White House call for a ban on assault weapons and a limit to the capacity of ammunition magazines that can be sold has not gained traction among lawmakers.
