This About That: Naw, the insurance industry and the medical industry will be setting the rules for a very long time, as they have been for a very long time.

cman: Where is snark?
snocone: The best health insurance Money will buy you.Congress gets real health insurance. Free!
Eddie Adams from Torrance: Health insurance ≠ health care
Isitoveryet: oh my answer is in TFAThe immediate political upshot for leaders of the Republican states that stonewalled the exchanges is that they'll avoid the wrath of their conservative flanks. And in the long-run, this decision allows them to more easily blame the federal government if things go wrong.
Isitoveryet: but how can they spin this to make blame President Obama?
HotWingConspiracy: Sort of further exposes the fact that the GOP has no ideas when it comes to the issue. Here is their big chance to show those big gubbermint spend-o-crats how it's done, and they've got nothing.
ecmoRandomNumbers: I'm just glad to Christ Arizona won't be doing its own thing.
BizarreMan: What's really stupid is that in Mississippi, the Republican Insurance Commissioner started to set up an Exchange because his thought is, if we're going to have it, lets have some say in it.The Republican Governor almost took him out back and shot him for going along with the Fed plan.

jigger: http://www.latimes.com/health/la-na-insurance-costs-20130218,0,173150 4 .storyLess than a year before Americans will be required to have insurance under President Obama's healthcare law, many of its backers are growing increasingly anxious that premiums could jump, driven up by the legislation itself. Higher premiums could undermine a core promise of the Affordable Care Act: to make basic health protections available to all Americans for the first time. Major rate increases also threaten to cause a backlash just as the law is supposed to deliver many key benefits Obama promised when he signed it in 2010.What? The Affordable Care Act will cause rates to rise? Who saw that coming, huh?
HotWingConspiracy: What? The Affordable Care Act will cause rates to rise? Who saw that coming, huh?Yeah rates never went up before, what gives?
DeathBySmiley: To be clear, Republicans didn't oppose universal coverage.They opposed creating a level, competitive marketplace where health insurance companies have to compete with one another in order to acquire new customers ObamaYou know, Communism that blah president.
