It's working great.
The insurance companies are charging more and getting paid. WITH TAX MONEY
The large medical facilities can charge all they want. So more money for medical administrators.
The policy holders still don't get medical attention because their co-pay and bigger deductible are still out of reach.

I've talked to a couple of people that are only paying $25/50 a month with the taxpayer picking up another $600/700 for the cost of the policy. One person lost his job, so he had a tiny Income and wanted insurance because he thought he needed some surgery. He didn't. Another person had high medical bills last year reducing her income. She was self employed

The whole medical/insurance system is so corrupt. Complicated terminology keeps the "House" the winner

I still do not know what to make of it since both political parties are 180 degrees opposite on it.

Obama Care does nothing to help manage medical cost. The Dem's will tell you the cost of medical increased less than it had in the past.


I really hear so many horror stories about raising cost of medical plans with higher deductibles across the board.


I suspect, it is hear to stay and we all may be on Medicare soon AKA Single Payer

On top of that, I think they are killing the Health Savings Account / Pre- Tax to save for the high deductible.

I"care has driven my healthcare costs sky high. I pay roughly double for what I consider worse coverage. The upside is that my $4 Walmart prescription is now covered, so I've got that going for me. 😀
