Probably referring to "re-purchasing" a BCBS plan through the Marketplace Exchange. A ton of people are going to qualify for govt subsidies for lower premiums and lower out of pocket costs based on income. I also recently read a article that suggested subsidies will work on "the honor system" and you will not be required to provide income verification.

I still think 70% is a fairly big number, especially considering that most of the high-deductible, low-premium plans will get the axe. I pay $130 for major medical & hospitalization through bcbs, I don't even want to know what my premium will be after the mandatory coverages are added.

I wonder how long it will take for this bs to crumble.

Roberts may have been crazy like a fox.

He calls the penalty a tax,and hopes the WH changes hands, but alas if not he has a backup lawsuit to strike this down with. Liberty university just lost their appeal to the 4rth circuit on the mandated application of the law ( abortions ) or a 15,000.00 penalty.( On businesses )

Their argument will be 2 fold before the SCOTUS, 1.that a 15k penalty is punitive and thus not a tax.

2.That all taxes must have their origin in the house as per the constitution, and the bill that was passed in the house was scrapped entirely by Ried in the senate as everyone knows.

The judges in the 4rth gave lame reasoning, I am assuming when Roberts called this a tax he already knew he had a later out because this Liberty lawsuit has been going on for a while.

You are full of shite. We have blue cross and we now have to pay 100 deductible on pharmacy and our doctor- visits just went up. Also our copay was jacked up and a lot of other "benefits" cost more. Our yearly deductible sky rocketed. All this for less coverage then we had last year. So take your lies to people who do not know any better clown.

Think of how efficient government is. Then think of how much you will get in return for your premium. I think everyone will be "surprised" to find out that these fees they never had before is just a tax because you will get deny-ed any treatment because it will be "too expensive". So its an Obama smoke screen all this time just to get your money. Of course some of us have been hearing this from the "liars" of talk radio.

But like every other lie we have been told, just keep saying these lies and ignore any sane reasoning that it is a lie and all will go away.

The news story had to do with individual policies, not group. Sounds like your employer is doing some cost cutting at the expense of his employees.

Some here will say its only 60 bucks and you aren't going to die so you should just suck it up! You know you aren't hard working or deserve your money, you are just "lucky" according to the POTUS. For Christ sake you don't want children to die do you?

It sucks sure, but he has every right to do that and that right should be defended.

Liberals hate freedom in the private sector and free market.

Read that the other day...

Won't hold my breath bc that all depends on the Employer mandate/individual mandate actually happening.


So in theory, you are now Ok with the minority getting screwed so that the majority is better off??? If so, why wasn't that your feeling with the entire legislation?

Are you a Govt. employee? I'm not aware of many private employers who are paying 100% of a single employees health care costs anymore.
And I don't mean this in a bad way, if you are only paying $60 a month for health insurance, that's cheap compared to most people, dirt cheap.

Our company pays health care for single people with nochildren. I doubt its the company I work for who made our insurance take a downward spiral they even picked up a supplementary insurance for us that will help us pay for the coverage the blue cross no longer provides.

Whoa there hot shot! He said they announced that. I also saw that they announced this. So did another poster.

Not saying it's true; just saying that the poster who originally said this is not making it up.
