  •  I sincerely hope that these low premiums (0+ / 0-)

    aren't just inducement to get millions of people to sign up, only to see rates skyrocket in a few years due to "unforeseen" costs, while at the same time insurers end up denying costly claims because they're "not covered". There's no way to know (that I know of) whether these apparently affordable new exchange plans are going to be for real, or junk insurance.

    This is all aside from GOP criticisms of these plans, which are coming from a completely different, wingnutty/libertarian/partisan politics direction.

    It seems like between the aggressively reactionary and vicious GOP and the aggressively greedy and uncaring corporate/financial sector--who more often than not are in cahoots, this being one notable exception--the American public continues to get screwed. Hopefully, this will be the exception in outcome too.
