Good news your health care premiums are going to go up something like 25 percent this year according to the nightly news. That adds about an extra 75 bucks a month for me. I suppose you guys with kids are really going to get creamed. Now we all know any actually solution from our govt is never going to happen. I'm also sure my plan of rounding up the CEOs of medical companies and shooting them won't fly either so let's say you were in charge. How would you fix this?

I assume this is already a huge drag on our economy. It looks to just get worse and worse every year. When does it end? How does it end?

Mandatory death at 65.

JK guys.

I know that universal health care will be a popular solution and it is probably the best one.

Trying to fix social security with more socialism is like trying to mend a broken arm with more broken arms.

They were saying some people on Obamacare will have their premiums go up by 125% and have a choice of 1 insurance provider.

How is this a good thing?

I'm one of the self-employed people who do not qualify for subsidies under Obamacare, and I'm getting pounded in the pooper. Most of the major insurance companies won't even be offering policies for sale next year.

We're actually thinking of Mrs. Zeus enroll in community college just so that we can be eligible for their student benefits plan. It's that bad.

There should be a corollary article that tells you how much your premium would go up if there were no Obamacare plus how many ppl got kicked off their insurance.
Healthcare and the insuring of is a major problem and we've not gotten close to fixing it. Yelling BENGHAZI doesn't fix it. OBUMMER, neither.
Hey Greitens, what's your proposal?



I pay for my wife and child independent of my work insurance because it sucks so bad. I bet I'm going to get hit hard.

I don't suppose the 'they' is a group of objective economists/analysts and not a politically-motivated 'they'.

I'm guessing my options will be pretty slim this year too. Last year there was only one plan that had my doctor and an hsa. I did qualify for the subsidies but only because of some fan you accounting and even then just barely.
