    when anyone reading this gets on a message board and is battling with a conservative screaming about rate increases, ask him/her if they've ever shopped on the individual market.

    99 times out of 100, the whiner is complaining because his/her co-pays to the employer went up. This is an entirely different thing (think some employers might be screwing their employees because they can blame Obamacare?).

    The individual market is a whole different beast.

    Also, beware the "big number" screeching small businessmen. Had a war with a guy who said his insurance was going up $12,000 next year. After some prodding and exploring, I found out that was for his 12 employees.

    So each one went up $1000, 0r $80/month. On the individual/small business market, I don't know the last time I've seen an increase less than that.
