    I wanted to barf when I heard the response to a great question about the doubling of health insurance premiums. Watch the video

    To add salt to the wound, the LA Times insinuates it could be broker steering.

    And a double down on more Co-Ops

    Reminds me of "burying head in sand"

    I was actually surprised they even allowed the question. The response shows that none
    Of them have a clue about the impact of this. Made me feel very sad for the questioner. She deserved a better answer than " you should shop a little more". . .

    Fellas?

    I know she is the devil to you guys, but honestly, what answer do you give without actually seeing the plan? Could you give expert advise without seeing the plan design on why it's double in premium?

    Without knowing what they had before to compare what they have now, what would you say and expect to be accurate?

    You know at least she didn't claim that eliminating state lines would solve the problem.....

    Huh??? I would expect her to say the truth. Why avoid it? The truth is, premiums went up, more then they expected, to cover the additional costs of covering those without insurance previously.

    She could have gone on to say 'because prior to the ACA, this was covered by tax dollars, now, we can use those tax dollars on other priorities', if she wanted.

    But just stick with the truth.
