The Affordable Care Act: Ten Months to Launch “Obamacare”––Get Ready for Some Startling Rate Increases
In states with the least mandates or for health insurance companies with the tightest underwriting now, the increase could be a lot more...
[E]xpect individual health insurance rates for people in their 20s and early 30s to about double…
Will the feds be ready to provide an insurance exchange in all of the states that don’t have one on October 1, 2013?
I have no idea. And neither does anyone else I talk to inside the Beltway. We only hear vague reports that parts of the new federal exchange information systems are in testing.
The former CIA director couldn’t get away with an affair in this town but the Obama administration has a complete lid on just where they are on health insurance exchanges and haven’t shown any willingness to want to talk about their progress toward launching on time––except to tell us all not to worry.
We are all worried. I would not want to be responsible for the work that remains and only have ten months to do it…
The Republicans said this would not work. If it does not launch on time, or does with serious problems, I would not want to be an incumbent Democrat.
I told them not to call this the “Affordable Care Act.”
I can't wait for these losers to try and blame this SCOAMF on Bush.
Oh, and let's come up with a more appropriate name for the Democrat Party:
The Bankruptocrat Party?
The Crashocrat Party?
The Lying-Sack-o-crat Party?
The Failocrat Party?
Help me out here, folks.
