    The Idaho Exchange executives are trying so hard to "spin" the premiums in a positive light that they're losing credibility.

    REF: BOISE, Idaho: Idaho exchange board: Average policy costs $240 | State | Idahostatesman.com

    They're gloating over the fact that the average cost for an Exchange plan in Idaho will be $240 per month for an individual. A couple of paragraphs later, they state that a family of four's premium is right at $1,000 per month.

    $1,000 a month in premium + medical deductible + prescription cost-sharing, for a potential out-of-pocket exceeding $37,000 each year...and the Exchange & State leadership is HAPPY about it?!?!

    This is why I call it ObamaCrap..............! :D

    The only way to control costs is to regulate the health care industry and mandate publishing costs, sadly this will not happen because of to much special interest $$$ (over 5 Billion in last year) is going into the politician's pockets...

    Time to clean house in DC..........
