"While some states will see medical claims costs per person decline, the report concluded the overwhelming majority will see double-digit increases in their individual health insurance markets, where people purchase coverage directly from insurers...
The report did not make similar estimates for employer plans, the mainstay for workers and their families. That's because the primary impact of Obama's law is on people who don't have coverage through their jobs"
Well thanks to ObamaCare, there are a lot of campanies that plan on dropping healthcare and saving a boatload of money by paying the fines, which are a small cost in comparisons.
Thankfully, the federal workers and labor unions that made back room deals with the Teleprompter in Chief, will be excluded, as they are conveniently excluded from the wonders of the program.
Grab your pitchforks and torches folks.
Time to show Obama just how much he is appreciated.

You just don't get it.
Those who have skimpy and inadequate insurance,(the report calls it "mortgage insurance,") will now have actual health insurance; and will have to pay for it.
These are the same people who used to show up at the hospital with a broken arm, or a child with appendicitis, and then skip paying because they can never even make one partial payment.
Up to now, those of us with adequate insurance would be BANGED by the hospital and doctors with $3,000/night BEDS,$30. ASPRINS, AND $900.X-RAYS...to pay for these freeloaders.
This report also sqys in passing, that potential savings, and also the benefits of competition were not factored.
The report is beyond 'conservative.' It is every worst case, visited only on those who are now oninsured, or under-insured.
Stop defending the freeloaders. Let them stop mooching off me.
I must presume you are a freeloader, as you are so upset about people paying their own way.
