Don't worry about being in debt if you have cancer under obummacare. If you have cancer, you'll be rationed / triaged to teh back of the line to save money and left to die - but at least you won't be in debt. Viva la revolutione, comrade!

I agree completely with Kevin Lembo on this. With health insurance the way it is today (out-of–pocket costs climbing, benefits sinking), it's "Buyer Beware," and we consumers need as much information as possible when making any health-related decision.

Transparency is necessary, but, of course, nowhere near sufficient in fixing our failing health care system. We could have all the information possible about plan options, and understand it all completely. But the choice would still be on the order of:“Do I want the $1,000 black-oozing banana, OR the $1,000 green and moldy orange, OR the $1,000 apple with the worm family inside?(Uhm ... don’t you have any FRESH fruit? And fruit that costs a little bit less than my monthly mortgage payments??)”

In all honesty, I think that some consumers out there probably DON'T want more transparency. It will only reveal, in highlight, all the sad, sorry "choices" they have.

We need transparency. And we need something work looking at – like quality, affordable healthcare for all.

They already are rationed. Reread the article, if you are poor you get nothing.
