Quoting M&D's Momma:" So employers can't hire based off what they project will happen onces OBAMACARE, but no one else can make projections. RIIIIGGGHHHTTTT!"
It's no longer a "projection" that health insurance prices are rising. Obama said that they would be lowered by $2,500 if we elected him president in 2008. In reality, they went up.
Only a moron would think Obamacare is going to lower prices. Go look at what Romneycare did to Massachusetts. It's the same model as Obamacare.
MA was spending 33% more than the national average before Romneycare and in 2 years, it increased an additional 23% (the national average being 6.5%). Insurers proposed premium increases to help cover costs, which were mostly rejected by MA regulators. Private insurance companies started closing down leaving big non-profit companies like Blue Cross and Harvard Pilgrim. The costs keep going up and since MA has decided they can't raise premiums, they've started rationing care.
