    But wait...I thought it was because of the big bad insurance companies???...

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/02/02/ben-bernanke-health-care-costs_n_1249890.html

    Health care costs have grown as the U.S. population ages and health care equipment becomes more expensive. The average family spent $13,770 on health care in 2010, a 3 percent increase from the year before, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation. The health care industry will account for one-fifth of the U.S. economy by 2020, according to a government report.
    Americans' health care spending in 2008 was triple what it was in 1990, according to a separate Kaiser report. The report noted that health care technology has become more state-of-the-art, driving up costs, and that chronic diseases have become more common as Americans live longer.

    In Response to Re: But wait...I thought it was because of the big bad insurance companies???... : Huh? No, the hated "libs" were blaming insurance companies for premium increases that gave them record-breaking profits in years during which Obama care was supposed to destroy them. :) "Health care costs" is a lot broader than "premiums." But at least we've recognized a point I made all along: One health care cost that isn't going away is the ever-increasing cost of more treatments and new machines.

    WRONG!

    Many blamed, incorrectly, the insurance companies for health care costs. If you want to continue to lie please just put me back on ignore.

    And no we haven't recognized YOUR point of increasing costs as if you were the only one to ever make such a claim. I've also been saying it, oh for about 20 years now. Being in the health care busniess and all.

    Pardon me, but Go F&%$ Yourself.


    Neither your vague post nor the article prove anything...except that costs have been rising dramatically...which we already knew.

    That the insurance companies are more than happy to profit on others' misery is a separate issue.

    Telling you to Go F&%$ Yourself is not an insult, it's a suggestion, or more likely a directive in this case.

    Matty seemed to think so since he didn't say it WASN'T an insult.

    And if his wasn't an insult then surely my saying "no kidding huh" is not one. There you have it

    There's that bad word again:  "profit".

    Everyone needs to depend on government to do for them what they won't do for themselves, lest they fall victim to someone utilizing "profit" as a motivator.

    The horror!

    2012 My premium and deductible went up, and my employer contribution went down. This is better?
    Posted by GreginMeffa


    Hey, mine too, that's cuz your company and mine are thriving in this great economy!

    My bi-weekly HPHC just jumped 24% in 2012, last year it jumped 27%, no choice but to suk it up.  Either that or sign up for the "Value-fund" option, with high deductible and low premiums.  Which means, you get sick, you're screwed!

    Your statement is as dumb as those who tell people to move to another country if they don't like the way things are here. Yup...great reasoning. Imbecile.
