Or you can look at the bigger picture discussed in the article below. Rates are going up, employers are dropping coverage, full time employees are being reduced to part time, cost estimates keep going up - all the things that Obamacare opponents warned about are happening. Those of us in the real world knew that a bureaucrat cannot just declare with the wave of a pen that "now everyone will have healthcare and everyone can keep their own doctors and everything is going to be butterflies and roses and not cost you any more money." There are real world facts and figures that bureaucrats know nothing about and yet they think they can just wave a magic wand and "poof" - all better. Well, as usual, it is "all worse."<quoted text>
We're not talking about Republican doom and gloom predictions of what ObamaCare WILL BE, we're talking about real-world results in California.
Big Difference, DoomSayer.
And if Obamacare is so wonderful for everyone, why is it that as of February, over 1,200 waivers have been granted by the Obama administration - mostly to labor unions - well, isn't that special?
And after the IRS scandal over targeting organizations that dared to "criticize the govt", are we really supposed to have faith that the IRS will also oversee Obamacare with complete impartiality and integrity?
Oh, and by the way - all those rosy estimates about California are dependent upon the participation of young people, if they "opt out" - it will be a disaster.
"Still, getting young adults to buy insurance won’t be easy, Levitt warns. The financial penalty for not having coverage next year is fairly small —$95 or one percent of income, whichever is greater. Also, fears abound that young people’s premiums will skyrocket because the health law limits the difference in price between plans for the young and old."
