We knew this would happen. It's part of the plan. The more people and companies that decide not to pay it, the more will drop private insurance and move to Obamacaid. Each and every time that happens we are one step closer to phasing out private insurance, and having everyone on a government plan, and eventually, single payer.

True. But if you are either paying for or considering a position where you will be paying for your own coverage you need to budget accordingly...

If I am understanding things. The plans in the exchanges will be something less than bronze, Bronze Silver, and gold.

The subsidies will be based on the Bronze level. The closer you get to gold the lower your deductible etc. This seems like its still a big time money loser. This is what happens when legislation that isnt thought out becomes law.

We need to define our terms better.

I hereby propose that, "Obamacare" be renamed "Obamacaid." The "care" in Obamacare implies that people will receive care.

The "caid" in Obamacaid implies that it will have more in common with Medicaid, where people will present to doctors offices and be told, "No thanks."
