  •  Down $5? Maybe when/if The Exchanges kick in ... (0+ / 0-)

    Last year, my GHI (New York) Small Group premium went up 22% ...  (that's about $200/person/month) ... this year we've been promised an 18% premium increase -- and GHI is one of the better not-for-profit companies in NY State.

    Now, I get it ... there are many ... THOUSANDS even ... of touching personal stories about how formerly-uninsured people now ARE insured and very grateful to be so.

    Self-evidently ... in a lottery there have to be SOME winners.

    And, of course Ryan/Romneycare would probably amount to "take two asprin and DON'T call me in the morning.

    Still ... building those Exchange websites is gonna make gainful employment for some and profit for others.

    Will someone explain to me how "Exchanges" would be significantly better than just letting the For-Profits peddle their wares on Amazon.com ?
