Low prices seen luring young adults to Obamacare: study

Aug 21, 2013 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Reuters

If uninsured young Americans shun the new health plans offered under President Barack Obama's healthcare reform law, it will be because the insurance costs too much and not because they don't expect to need much medical care, according to a study released on Wednesday.

WOW, your personal, out of pocket, health insurance cost went down 53%. Almost unbelievable. Just imagine how much you'll save once obamacare is actually implemented!

14 states have already shown a minimum of 20% decrease in current premiums - New York has shown a 53% decrease alone! So of course they'll do anything to stop it - just like in the early 60's, when Reagan did a whole skit for the republicans against Medicare - see how well that worked?
Republicans will NEVER hold the White House once this is implemented - and they know it.
Then your'e state must be getting waivers. I myself decided to let mine go cause I'd rather go to a Naturalpath and they don't take insurance. May just pay the fine.

Good luck with your "naturalpath". If that doesn't work out, I have the number for your local witch doctor. The moon, wasn't it?

Yep, his company and union cut their benefits in half. To a liberal, that means they are saving........just like unemployment adds to the economy.

Don't forget the pharma companies that will be making out like bandits from Obamacare! The only people that will be hurt are of course the middle class, those that work, those that already had insurance they were happy with....the one's Obama was going to do so much for.

If you and Dumbo are competing for the most idiotic poster on Topix, you're now tied;

"State insurance regulators say they have approved rates for 2014 that are at least 50 percent lower on average than those currently available in New York. Beginning in October, individuals in New York City who now pay $1,000 a month or more for coverage will be able to shop for health insurance for as little as $308 monthly. With federal subsidies, the cost will be even lower.

You both talk a lot of shit - neither of you offer any links to support your claims.

Iím beginning to see why you get judged ďSpamĒ with most of your posts.
Your comment has nothing to do with the subject, ACA success in adding millions to health care, nor did it have anything to do with my comment.

Since your comment stated that Obama care works......maybe you could explain why Obama has stopped all four of the triggers that should have started. It's a cluster flucb pookie, and Obama and congress know it.

Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) persuaded six supporters of the de-funding effort to change sides and vote to pay for Obamacare.
