From Richard Mayhew at Balloon Juice:
….Most people get their insurance through either a government program (Medicare, Medicaid, CHIP, VA, IHS etc) or through work. Employer based coverage looks like it is increasing by 5% to 6% this year.
The rest of the market is fairly stable and predictable with few major policy shocks to it. The QHP market is still not stable and still not predictable as the ramifications of major policy shocks are still reverberating.
Is it a problem. Hell yes. Is it a widespread problem. Hell no.

In MO, Obamacare premiums are slated to jump 20-29%. Unaffordable for far too many. What is your Obamacare story?

Instead of working on a fix for approximately three percent of the people who have coverage the right wingnut solution is to chuck it all.
My Obamacare story? There are no lifetime limits on my health insurance coverage. There are no annual limits on my health insurance coverage. My insurance company can’t rescind my coverage (cancel my insurance) for a paperwork error.
