  •  What was it in president Obama speech (0+ / 0-)

    that had anything to do with the cost of middle class premiums and out of pocket not going up? So we may get a public option for about 5% of people who don't or can't afford healthcare. What about people who don't have and may not ever have preexisting and are not turned down? Seems to me, their should be something in the speech about lowering cost for them.

    If it will be against the law for insurance companies to not drop and not pay, and at the same time make it mandatory for young people (and there are a lot of them) to purchase insurance like auto insurance. Does that mean the insurance companies get a windfall? Does that mean our (most of us) premiums want go up? You know that segment of society that want get sick or have no pre-existing and have to pay into high price private insurance companies for the next 20 and 30 years? Seems to me the insurance companies win again and we get the shaft....Again.

    I didn't see anything that covers this segment of society. Ain't nothing strong about this 5% public option. If anyone else saw something in the speech that shows i missed something please post.
