Fortunately, my company offers insurance. That was one of the biggest reasons I got out of my old job. I saw it coming. I simply got lucky. Many others won't. If you can't pay for it, you pay for it anyway until you end up on welfare. In that case, you're STILL a burden on the system in that you now are using money from the government to buy food instead of using it to pay off a doctor's bill. Obamacare just gives the same problem a different label. Only now, It's going to hurt alot more people than welfare apathy alone. I don't like this situation at all.
It's bad, but not quite that bad. A policy increase averaging 40% for most, nationwide. But you can select lower coverage and mitigate your costs. No, it's not the reduction of $2500/family that was promised. But it's still early and there may yet be some savings. The challenge is that it may not survive its rollout. If it doesn't fix the glitches by December, it may not get the chance to prove what a great deal it is to America. I have faith that it will get better, but I know how fickle people are, and if they get terrible service two times in a row, they may just pay the fine and wait a year.
