I have no idea, just offering up a personal glimpse of what its doing to my family. Right now, its an 8% increase over what I was paying, and in-line with previous medical increases, but then again, I haven't figured out how much vision/dental is going to cost me to get to a final number. I'm guessing I'll probably be more like a 20-25% jump (this year).

more specifically...

You think a 4 hour performance of the DJIA is an accurate measurement of the impact government policies/behaviors have on the economy?

It's not having much impact. Now if you put Bernanke out there and he says "We're going to end the QE program immediately" watch the DJIA drop like a rock. The last few times that it was suggested that the fed would taper the QE, the DJIA dropped very quickly only to recover when he said it was going to continue. yay we love play money!

Do you actually believe that w/o Obamacare that your health insurance would not go up after cobra run outs? You can't be that stupid.

I don't know what you are tying to say here?

People that use the DJIA as a current indicator of the economy or changes in the DJIA as some sort of indicator of government policies are stupid and have no idea what they're talking about.

You know rates are set by insurance companies, not Obamacare? They also change depending on where you live.

Do you know why the republicans have paid for commercials to try to convince younger people not to participate?

And the government has spent millions in tax money to try to convince people to participate? What's your point?

Funny you should mention that. I can switch RIGHT NOW (well, in 15 days) and I'd actually go down in costs, and I keep vision/dental (although braces won't be covered anymore), except those rates will only run till 12/31/2013.

Can't generate a personal quote for 2014.

Remember when Obama promised everyone would get to keep their old insurance plans if they wanted under the new law?
