Themaddyooper: Here is something that no one talks about. They talk about th people who will lose coverage and the people who gained coverage but How many people are like me? My premiums have more than doubled. I have a $5000 deductible and $13,500 out of pocket expense. I am counted as insured. But If I were to have to use it say in November. I could easily hit both those figures by Jan 1. Jan 2, I have to meet that same obligation again. I make 50 g a year before taxes. I am not alone I have been job hunting and have found a couple better deals but they are still not practical. You can't blame the company I work for either. every one who works there is in the same boat. They are also the same people who just 3 short years ago got us good insurance that we could afford $500 deductible $1000 out of pocket. I don't care if the congress rips this out by the roots. I don't have insurance I can use. I don't care if the congress rips it apart piece by piece. I don't have insurance I can use and I paying up for it. You can't say we have to take care of the poor. We were taking care of the poor before obama care was passed in the middle of the night. We gave them food. We gave them housing. We gave them expense money. We gave them heat. We even gave them medical cards. All of this had more to do with the dems losing the election than any pundit will admit. We still have the best government money can buy.
