    over or even their head up their ass about is even if the Health care Bill is so bad doing nothing as was done pre-2010 HCB is just as bad. I was laid off from my factory job in March,2007 about a month later I got my COBRA letter which stated I could keep my $500.00 deductible insurance if I would pay $1098.00 a mmonth for premiums. However just 4 years before that the premiums under COBRA were $575.00 to $600.00 a month for $250.00 deductible policy. Same Insurance company just 4 years difference in the timeline but it still basically doubled in just 4 years along with the deductible doubling over those same 4 years. I know COBRA is expensive and companies get cheaper rates but IMHO even those cheaper rates probably doubled in those 4 years.

     In summation alot of what people are  predicting the health care bill will do as far as raising costs are concerned are going to happens anyways if nothing is done,just look at the example involving me as some evidence.

      and COBRA is really health insurance of last resort as it tends to be the most expensive insurance offered...I went off COBRA early because my insurance from the NJ exchange was 25% cheaper for the same coverage...

      Imagine that an exchange in NJ and it is working with no pre-existing conditions or recision allowed...
