    Any thoughts regarding Trumpet’s midnight effort to overturn Obamacare?
     In the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, the Trump administration on Thursday urged the Supreme Court to overturn the Affordable Care Act. The late-night court filing came on the same day the government reported that close to half a million people who lost their health insurance amid the economic shutdown have gotten coverage through HealthCare.gov.
    I have no idea what he is trying to accomplish there.  What is amazing to me is the number of people that vote for tRump that rely heavily on the ACA and yet they still vote for tRump and probably support the overturning of "Obamacare" because they are too stupid to realize that it is the ACA.

    And 20% is ridiculous. At that rate your cost doubles about every 4 years. Middle class can’t afford healthcare anymore.

    It's been that way since at least 1998 which is when I started paying my own premiums.  You used to be able to change carriers (like car insurance) to get better rates but prior to the ACA you could only do that if you didn't have any pre-existing conditions.

    Yeah I have had my own insurance since 1998 and since then ever year no matter the company cost seem to go up between 15-20% , the ACA although not in all cases has had premiums drop over the years for most of the silver / bronze plans ( cannot speak for gold ).

    My friends plan went down 12 dollars this past year via the ACA , regardless this is the issue with insurance not just the ACA , everything is still going thru the insurance companies that need to maximize profits for share holders year over year while at the same time have to pay so many people who are just pushing paper around.

    Gold Plan fit my needs best.

    The plan started off at around $800 5 years ago.

    Somewhere on here I have my yearly increases.

    That is a lot of out of pocket for you though.  I did not want that.

    On another note.  As bad as it is I do not want Trump messing with anything and to leave preexisting conditions alone.

    But luckily we are relatively healthy...so I don't have much out of pocket at all.  Plus we have a health savings account so anything out of pocket comes out of there.

    If you went to bronze and put the difference in a savings account the out of pocket takes care of itself.

    But I do understand that gold might be better if you have some health issues to deal with consistently

    My company buys my health insurance.  I am pretty healthy too.  I wanted to have an insurance package that closely resembled my previous one where I paid next to nothing out of pocket.
