Nothing else in America is increasing 17% EXCEPT our insurance rates for health care costs. As long as we continue to support members of Congress who support the health care industry and not the people, we can expect to see these numbers rise year and year.

Too bad the president caved to the Republicans on the public option. That would have put the brakes on the obnoxious trend set forth by the insurance companies.

Hey New Clear Waste this is an example of the costs going down that you have been talking about.

Lay this one on the plate of Obamacare and not the insurance industry.

If the public option had gone through we would have laid the cost of government administration on top of the insurance company administration and the increase might have been 25%.

Hey New Clear waste are you happy we are now paying for those 30 million people you said needed to be covered my the rest of us.

Thank you Pelosi and Obama certainly have made things better for those of us who already had insurance.

And the AARP who supported him and the Dem's said the same thing. Now they are raising premiums 13%.

My company has held down costs for 3 years. Next year we are told to hold onto our socks. Pay for mine, pay for yours. Guess that's fair if you're not paying anything now. Check out one of the last AARP newsletters, they have caught 900 Billion in Medicare fraud so far. Wait until we are all under Medicare-like insurance. Thanks for the rectal exam Nancy, would have felt better without the whole fist. Scrunt.

All the itching in Windham county as well as Brat is coming from those who moved here and didn't see this part of the dreams. Just walking the streets sipping tea and window shopping for tattoos and bongs. Reality sucks when your a dreamer

If your renting your still downstream and those above will wizz on you eventually. All those Ta-do houses in the hills were built on your backs stealing what they could out of their corps. and where ever they could and now half of them were over their level and even that bring down those trying to survive. "Now sonny boy false and fake is no way to go through life" Bye bye hero this wood shack is payed for and homey and ya that is rust on my beater. Is that a low plate number or your monthly payment even better a lease to look coo; and turn it in soon while the YUGO'S are still available senior
