I am sure $620/month for seniors will be quite the bargain.

All things considered, the average Medicare recipient will save about $650 a year under Obamacare. Wherever you got your "statistic", I hope you put the lid back on.

I got my statistic from the quoted article :)
.
For those who make too much to qualify for help now and will then be required to buy health insurance (at the bargain rate of $650/month), I am curious as to where they will get the money to pay for coverage.
.
Even if we go with your assumption that Obamacare will save them money, the cost of living in other areas of life will eat up that savings.

Romneycare lowered or steadied rates *in the beginning*.

My hunch is the insurance companies were told to sit on rates until the 2014/16 elections.

It is not me, even some Democrats in Congress are becoming concerned.
.
Remember, the Democrats rigged the numbers so if costs do drop a little, it will be because you are working off the TRUE numbers, not the lower phony ones they published when the bill was passed.
.
Only someone like you would think getting a few percentage back after being charged more is a bargain :)
