They might have to restructure things so the price can go up 2 or maybe even 3 times a year. ;-)

As I understand it, if we can just hang on til 2014 this will all be free, just like Bambi is filling our gas tanks and paying for the house we can’t afford?

I remember the days when everyone could afford medical care. Hospitals were nonprofit, Doctors made house calls, insurance premiums were affordable, and malpractice insurance was at a minimum. That was BEFORE the government first got into the health care system. We are now going to see exponential rises in health care costs, thanks to this Congress and this administration who have designed the takeover to take over our lives. God save our free enterprise system!
