This is much worse than had been predicted by even the most pessimistic of health care observers. While I'm sure some increases won't be so drastic, there will nonetheless be drastic increases for nearly everyone who wants to keep their private insurance plans. This is subtle blackmail by the Great Pretender. Sure, keep your plan, but it's going to cost you 40% of your income. No one can afford that. Everyone will be forced into the "one-size-fits-all" idiocy of the PPACA. I've changed my stance. Republicans need to kill this law, anyway they can. Even if it means putting the government out of business. Just Do It!
