    At least the Unions that support obama are going to get screwed to.
    That's why the unions want out of obamacare.

    How do you get health insurance costing $28K???? Man. Maybe if I lived at a hospital or something. That's just a crazy number.

    most of that is paid by an employer.

    where i work the family "plan" is $620. per month out of my wallet with health, vision and dental. the deducables and co-pays are high as giraff *****.... but we are told we pay about 1/3 of the premiums and our employer pays the rest.

    how much is that?

    I thought the figure was high, but Union benefits??


    Like Polisi said, We have to vote in obamacare before you can find out what's in it.



    Personally, my Blue Cross and Medicare premiums have already gone up.
    (Yes, when you retire you DO have to pay monthly Medicare premiums out of your Social Security check, and if you want decent coverage you had better pay for supplemental insurance, like Blue Cross)

    Also personal,
    I recently tore both shoulders and they were operated on.
    I was told by several medical people I came in contact with, that under obamacare I probably couldn't get those operations at all.

    The full price of health insurance for an employee + family is around $2K +/- a month. So getting to $29K is not hard.

    $10,000 deductible, premium $560/mo my family's total healthcare expenditures on any given year were circa $8000-9000 all inclusive.

    We bought our own for several years

    Geez. And I thought health insurance was expensive HERE! I don't think I've ever seen a plan on annual renewal (I'm on my own, BTW - no company sponsored portion - and I do sleep with the company owner's wife. LOL) that starts with a TWO! Let alone approaching $2,500. Wow!

    The average annual premiums in 2012 are $5,615 for single coverage and $15,745 for family coverage. Average premiums increased 3% for single coverage and 4% for family coverage in the last year. Consistent with recent years, average family premiums for small firms (3-199 workers) ($15,253) are significantly lower than average family premiums for larger firms (200 or more workers) ($15,980).


    According to the Kaiser Family Foundation.

    Wow. All of a sudden, I think RomneyCare may have worked. I'm under $15K/yr. WOOT!

    (Just kidding - the state is paying more and more and more and more every year BECAUSE of Romneycare. DeVille Patrick is running out of tax ideas to raise funds for it.)

    I sadly understand why they wanted it to pass before we would be able to figure out what is in it.
