Vermont Gives Up on Single-Payer Healthcare...

Post  News Hawk on Sun Dec 21, 2014 9:12 am

States’ pockets also need to be deep and wide. Oregon considered adding a public option — not the same as single-payer, but with similar challenges — to its Obamacare exchange in 2010, but ultimately decided the startup costs were too high, even if savings were forecast down the road.

“...People have to ultimately understand that it’s going to cost them less even though their taxes go up"...

It's THOSE Numbers Again...

Prospects for Obamacare are looking gloomy—from Britain:

study


New Obamacare signups for this year are only 1.9 million as most customers are re-enrolled AUTOMATICALLY and there's little chance of reaching the 13 million total Congress says the program needs.

Just 1.9 million have signed up this year so far.

Most renewals are automatic, creating the risk of 'rate shock' when re-upped Americans get their bills in January
HHS's solution is a plan that  would allow the agency to change consumers' coverage levels without their permission
DailyMail.com projects that fewer than 8.3 million Americans will be signed up by the mid-February deadline
That would miss HHS's own 9 million to 9.9 million estimate and fall well short of the Congressional Budget Office's 13 million number.

'Those receiving federal premium subsidies may need to switch plans in 2015 to avoid paying more than the limits established by the [Affordable Care Act],' she said in June, 'and the impact will be more profound for lower-income consumers.'

Meanwhile, HHS has revised its enrollment estimates downward.
