    No seriously, health insurance premiums have gone up at a slower rate the past three years than at any point the past half century. Though LA Mormon is rather off since the main reason for this isn't Obamacare but rather the recession (after all most of Obamacare hasn't gone into effect yet). However states like Maryland are seeing good results with the system they've set up so far.

    LA Mormon, I do not know what world you are living in?
    Maybe you are another government employee?

    We are struggling, we have been for 5 years now.
    We are tired of the lies, the empty promises.

    No amount of lies from our president and his followers can cover the truth to us.
    We see it, we live it everyday.

    We face aver increasing taxes and regulations.
    Our health insurance has gone up, our coverage has gone down.

    You can tell me I am wrong, but I know what has happened to us, and most of the self employed and small business people I know.

    You know, if we could keep the money we actually earn, we would not need apply to have the government subsidise our healthcare. That just make me ill- why should we have to pay half our income into a fraudulent thieving government so we can't pay for our own healthcare?

    The goobermint just loves promoting its propaganda. It really is the non-Affordable Care Act. Wealth redistribution from your friendly socialists.

    With all that is going on in Washington DC to defund and stop this affordable Health car lie, this would be a good time for Utah to start down sizing or preparing for a loss of funding from Medicaid and medicare the criminal Utah health care fraud machine. The Romney plan is backfiring and not workable or sustainable for an entire population. The Romney plan must have working tax payers to fund it and tax payers are declining and so is tax revenue.

    The house and Senate are seriously considering shutting down this fraud including the Utah ponzi plan. Health care is an as needed service and ability to pay for it. Its time the taxes are put to better use to serve the needs of people not corporations for the rich. Health care is not accountable to governemnt, state or federal.

    Government has the wrong idea about health care and the wellness of people, its time to revert to the good old plan of health care as needed and affordable by individuals with or without private insurance. Affordable health care is one where government has no oversight or controls by tax funding.

    county mom,

    Your insurance costs did not increase because of the health law. This law has actually brought the costs of health care down over the past 3 years and will reduce the costs more once everyone has insurance. If your health care costs have risen as you say it may be time to look for a new policy in October when the health care marketplace opens. There will be great deals on health policies and subsidies available to help you buy insurance if your income qualifies. Most people where you live will.

    Our insurance has already risen, more then doubled, we know that it is coming.

    Many small businesses are already struggling with trying to find a way to stay in business with all the increasing regulations, now we get to add to the burden.

    Do not try to sell this massive load of taxes as anything more then that.
