One way to look at stock valuations is the Shiller PE index, which looks at a decade of earnings and adjusts for inflation. Stocks are currently trading around a multiple of 24, meaning the stock price is 24X a company's earnings. Historically, stocks have traded at a multiple of 16.
So the bubble has formed now for when it pops.
Going to be a big one when it blows!!!!

The good far outweighed the bad. Wish we could say the same about the Obama years.

That's just plain stupid. Doctor's spend about 5% of their time dealing with medicaid patients...it's not their full time job. Get a clue. It would make more sense to say that doctor's salaries should be cut by 70% to match the pay of federal employees.

It means they "signed up". What do you think it means? The exchanges were set up to appeal to those who need help paying for their healthcare. There really is no reason to purchase insurance from the exchanges if you don't need a subsidy.
Did you know that people can sign up, pay the first payment, receive the subsidy, and be covered for 4 months even if they never make another payment?

Health industry expert Kip Piper says, "The ACA was not designed to reduce costs or, the law's name notwithstanding, to make health insurance coverage affordable for the vast majority of Americans. The law uses taxpayer dollars to lower costs for the low-income uninsured but it also increases costs overall and shifts costs within the marketplace."

This is not a new revelation, by the way. In 2010, the Heritage Foundation's Joshua Wade warned:

Obamacare will succeed only at shifting the burden to taxpayers and the privately insured. Americans with private health insurance will indirectly subsidize care received by those reliant on Medicare and Medicaid. It is for this reason that for many Americans, Obamacare will actually cause medical costs to rise.

Ouch.

Perhaps it's just as well. Those folks priced out of health coverage would have had a hell of a time getting in to see a doctor with one of the exchange plans, anyway.

In California alone, 38 percent of tax credit recipients are projected to have to pay back more than $850 — if no income changes are reported during the year, according to a September Health Affairs study.
Most repayments would likely mean smaller tax refunds, rather than a new tax bill. That’s because those most likely to use the credits receive around $3,000 in tax refunds each year, said Ken Jacobs, a University of California Berkeley professor and co-author of that study.
Still, a smaller refund can bring hardship for this population, whose members often rely on the annual tax refund check to help pay basic bills.

What were Obammy and Hillary doing the night that Ambassador Stevens was screaming in agony because his genitals were being electrically prodded?

Anyone who dismisses that question and votes for Hillary is as under-informed or as ignorant as those who voted for continuing the Obammy failure regime for four more years.

You have to be an underachiever to qualify for an ObammyCare subsidy.
USA Today ran the numbers and found that, in much of the country, Obamacare plans are so expensive that many people who make too much to qualify for subsidies are exempt from requirements that they purchase insurance under the Affordable Care Act.
For USA Today, Jayne O'Donnell and Paul Overberg write:
More than half of the counties in 34 states using the federal health insurance exchange lack even a bronze plan that's affordable — by the government's own definition — for 40-year-old couples who make just a little too much for financial assistance, a USA TODAY analysis shows.
Many of these counties are in rural, less populous areas that already had limited choice and pricey plans, but many others are heavily populated, such as Bergen County, N.J., and Philadelphia and Milwaukee counties.
More than a third don't offer an affordable plan in the four tiers of coverage known as bronze, silver, gold or platinum for people buying individual plans who are 50 or older and ineligible for subsidies.
Those making more than 400% of the federal poverty limit —$47,780 for an individual or $61,496 for a couple — are ineligible for subsidies to buy insurance.
Under the Affordable Care Act, you're exempt from requirements that you purchase insurance if "The lowest-priced coverage available to you would cost more than 8% of your household income," according to Healthcare.gov . This is a less than ideal situation, because many of these people might actually want coverage that has now been priced beyond their reach. That means, continue O'Donnell and Overberg, "the analysis clearly shows how the sticker shock hitting many in the middle class, including the self-employed and early retirees, isn't just a perception problem. The lack of counties with affordable plans means many middle-class people will either opt out of insurance or pay too much to buy it."

The FEDs decided it was time to reduce the Stock Market welfare scheme. Good the slow deflation of the bubble. No, wait, the FEDs then turns around and promises to keep interest low for the whole year of 2014. The bubble continues to swell.
