You serious clark?
Ever thought that maybe they just aren't reporting? Hell, CA's insurance commissioner just came out 2 days ago with their numbers.
I have thought about all sorts of scenarios....they aren't reporting yet, they already had regulations in place that plans available in the state satisfied the requirements of Obamacare, that once again someone on the right was using less than truthful information to support an unfounded prediction that will prove to be as wrong as all such predictions are from the right....yeah, I have thought about all sorts of shite...
The real number that I am interested in is how many people didn't have insurance before the law as passed and how many will have when it is in effect AND what the median cost increase/decrease is when all is said and done.....if there are fewer insured people and the median cost has increased dramatically than ya'll will have finally proven the maxim that a blind pig finds an acorn once in a while.
I am not convinced (and ya'll can't categorically prove) that either of these will come to pass....I think that there is going to eventually be a larger number of people with health insurance and that costs increases will slow down but more importantly the median cost of insurance will be lower than it would have been otherwise for two reasons....first is the pre-existing condition factor that would have made buying coverage at any cost impossible prior to the ACA. This alone will negate (mathematically) every anecdote offered up of people's coverage costing 1000% more than it did before hand. And the other thing that will do this is the coverage that 18-26 year olds will not have to buy at all.....those numbers will drive down the cost for a huge number of people which will also help drive down then median cost.
So what is my point? Why don't ya'll tell the truth....middle class folks insurance rates are going to either go through the roof and many people are no longer going to have the same policy they did have. This is the truth and it is plenty ammo to shoot down the ACA...but when ya'll resort to spreading anecdotal evidence and trying to relate it to proof that people are going to be dying at the hands of death panels ya'll lose all credibility. Of course credibility is almost impossible to come by on the right because you have to depend on lies to spread the gospel of the right....
