What a great day!! NOT

Opened up the mail and got a notice from Blue Cross that our health insurance was going up 22%. Over a $100 increase and we only had one claim for $700 in 18 months. Gotta pay for everyone who doesn't have insurance. Isn't life wonderful?

What, you want people to pay their own way? All their own way, how rude. Lots of reasons why health is going way up. Would violate to many rules to post them on here.

Health Care has been on the rise every year for a decade. Politics have nothing to do with it! Health care costs will continue to rise without some kind of regulations. I can never see a CEO saying our profits were 10% last year and this year we are cutting our rates to customers and only going to make 5% this year. That will never happen in my lifetime! Some times regulations put forth aren't the most terrible thing.

The cost of health care is getting way out of hand. Insurances are going to raise prices when they are having to pay into bills that are being tallied by hospitals and doctors. My wife had back surgery and in the hospital for two days including the day of the surgery. Hospital bill not including the doctors fees $128,000 in round numbers. The doctors charges another $13,000 and a bone growth generator she has to ware another $6800.00. In my opinion you can't blame costs on any one president as these costs have been escalating for years now. Who knows where it will all stop. JMHO

Our system was set up during a time of relative youth, high wages, and much greater participation paying in. Now, we're all older, wages are stagnant, and many employers have axed health benefits for the middle-class. So there are far fewer healthy workers paying in, and many more older, poorer, Americans drawing from the system. Costs have escalated due to litigation, regulation, and a host of other reasons, yet many good doctors are going bankrupt. Simple economics, spending more than we're making.
Is Obamacare the answer? I doubt it. Is returning back to the way things have been trending for the past 30 years? Absolutley not!
What I would like to hear from all those bashing Obamacare is an alternative, what is the answer? And if the answer was known 5-10 years ago, why wasn't it implemented?

I can not remember any year in the past that health care cost went down, and I have been around for quite a long time. Obamacare might not be the answer, but it is time to make a change, doing it the same way forever is not going to help.

If you always do what you've always done, you always get what you always got.

At this time, I see no O Care bashing.

Sorry, I should have specified the bashing I see on the TV every night. This group is much more civilized than the politicians trying to get hired for their next job.
