That’s unexpected. Who would have guessed that covering more conditions for more people would cost more money?
The Wisdom of Thomas Sowell:

I'm reporting you to the Thought Police!
I just keep thinking about how big a disaster this is going to be and hope I am right in believing that I can hold out longer than the people it is going to really hurt.
I won’t like paying but I hope I am going to be able to LMAO at who screams the loudest.
I’m not worried; Barry told me that my premiums will be dropping, so somebody else will be paying those higher costs, not me.
... 3,000% decrease in premiums ,too:

You can't report me. I'm shocked! Shocked, I say, to discover that there is inefficiency in federal programs!
Nowadays we hear these sad stories about poor folks who have to choose between buying their medicines and buying food or paying for heat, etc.
A couple years from now, the sad stories will be about people having to choose between paying for their health insurance or going homeless.
This is in the Ass. Press??
Wait until this makes business lay off or not hire people. This POS bill is all about controlling every area of our lives, in a Bloomberg-esq way, under the umbrella of “healthcare” and strangling our economy.
