That's what the coverage costs now for such a family of four WITHOUT ObamaCare. No change. If you have a plan at work, you don't have to buy this "other" insurance. What's the big deal. Nice work, Heather Ginsberg. Give half the facts. Whose payroll are you on? Sounds like FOX to me. But, wake up,maven Rupert Murdoch is changing his tune.

Oh please, with those old attacks. COme up with something original, can't you?

It's all the fault of Fox News! And Bush! And Rove, and Cheney, and those wascally Wepublicans. And anyone else your masters tell you to blame it on.

Think about this little fact: Before the election, Obama was taking credit for HIS economy, for the improvements in employment that HE claimed as a result of HIS brilliant handling of the economy. Isn't that true? Isn't that why you voted for him, because he just needs 4 more years to complete his saving of the economy that Bush destroyed?

So tell me, why has Obama stopped claiming the economy is HIS, now it is Bush's again. Hmmmm?

If that's true, then why did we need Obamacare? Wasn't this supposed to provide AFFORDABLE/FREE healthcare for all those millions without it at work?

No, honey, the idea is to drive up the costs for employers so most will quit offering private insurance, then we'll all have to turn to the government as our savior. This was only step one to a total, socialized, one-payer system.

Thi BIG deal is, we pay for this whether we have insurance or not! The big deal is, our care goes down. My mom is over 75, she can forget about a hip or knee replacement! The big deal is, the American public did not and still does not want this outrageous cost to America!

Sounds like you never owned a business or have a clue about what overhead costs mean.

You okay with government taking care of you? They are doing such a great job with the poor that poverty has increased under Barry.

Companies will be cancelling their plans, some already have. Obama doesn't care about the cost, in fact he is happy with it. Now he can come back and say "see it is so expensive, the insurance companies are ripping your off, we need a government sponsored single payer system." And that is what he wanted all along.You dumb as ses that voted for this turd deserve what you get.

Before I was laid off the cost of insurance had gone up twice due to the additional mandates.

She is talking about her family of four, not yours. Some people who don't currently have insurance had hoped that the cost of coverage would come down, but the "savings" is only for those who pay the penalty. Read it again and note what portion is Heather's writing.

Ok. First. Think about how much you pay for health insurance currently. Now, think about how much you are going to have to pay under the new ObamaCare laws. Well according to a new IRS regulation released, they assume the average family will pay a minimum of $20,000 for their health care plans.

Under Obamacare, Americans will be required to buy health insurance or pay a penalty to the IRS.

The IRS's assumption that the cheapest plan for a family will cost $20,000 per year is found in examples the IRS gives to help people understand how to calculate...
