They aren't going to see the money because people aren't going to pay the higher prices. I have seen 3x the price increase in healthcare. I have seen these numbers. People aren't going to pay for this. It's too much money. The cost don't add up for those that don't go to the doctor and don't get sick. Not worth it to pay 8-10,000 a year for something you don't use.
Higher prices compared to what? These healthcare exchanges are for people that don't have insurance or can't get it through an employer. My wife personally knows someone that has already signed up. When she looked into going out and buying health insurance on her own, $1350 + per month. In the exchanges? Around $250 a month.
I just found one of those subsidy calculators online. A family of 4 with an annual income of around $50,000 would pay out of pocket premiums of $280 per month. Of course, these costs vary greatly by state. What's been found is that states whose governments went all in on creating their exchanges are seeing lower costs for their citizens. States governments that protested against it, mostly those with Repub governors, by refusing to establish the exchanges are seeing higher costs for their citizens because of a lack of options.
Look, here's my deal. Is Obamacare perfect? No, absolutely not. But the fact is that our healthcare system was broken. Healthcare reform has been brought up for decades. Finally, it gets done. But before it's even fully implemented you have people saying its a failure. this law is going to be amended and changed many times. But saying that it just needs to be fully repealed is crazy. Why? so we can go back to the way things were? No thanks.
As for the increased prices, I have not seen them. Actually, the insurance premiums at my employer haven't gone up one penny for 2 straight years.
