    what is really amazing

    is that the employer mandate will take effect next year and i would bet they are going to see the price of health care sky rocking and dump their employee healthcare. so millions of people that enjoy ins thru their work are next in line, you know that coming.

    • The GOP healthcare plan is 'die quickly', especially if you are not rich.

    • G.O.P. UNVEILS OWN HEALTH-CARE WEB SITE, EMERGENCYROOMGOV

      ANDY BOROWITZ | OCTOBER 31, 2013 | The New Yorker

      WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—Saying that “the American people are fed up with a disastrous Web site that doesn’t work and never will,” House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Virginia) and a phalanx of congressional Republicans today unveiled their own health-care Web site, EmergencyRoom.gov.

      “At EmergencyRoomgov, every American can access the one tried-and-true health-care system that has worked in this country for decades,” he said.

      While Healthcare.gov has frustrated many users with its difficult-to-navigate design, Rep. Cantor said that at EmergencyRoom.gov, “Health care is just three easy steps away. One: enter your zip code. Two: see the list of emergency rooms. Three: get to the nearest one before you die.”

      The Virginia Republican wasted no time touting the cost savings of EmergencyRoomgov, comparing it favorably with the notoriously expensive Obamacare site: “UNLIKE HEALTHCAREGOV, WHICH PRIVATE CONTRACTORS BUILT AT A COST RUNNING INTO THE HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS, EMERGENCYROOMGOV WAS BUILT FOR NINE HUNDRED DOLLARS BY MY INTERN JOSH.”

      AND IN CONTRAST WITH HEALTHCAREGOV’S MAZE OF FORMS, LINKS, AND PHONE NUMBERS, HE SAID, “EMERGENCYROOMGOV HAS JUST ONE PHONE NUMBER: 9-1-1.”

      IN WHAT MAY BE THE STRONGEST SELLING POINT FOR THE NEW SITE, REP. CANTOR SAID THAT THE WAIT TIME ON EMERGENCYROOM.GOV IS “VIRTUALLY NONEXISTENT,” NOT COUNTING THE TWELVE TO THIRTY-SIX HOURS SPENT IN THE ACTUAL EMERGENCY ROOM.

      Sentiment: Strong Buy

    • We've already been warned, next year the only option will be the high deductible...We'll be priced out of the PPO.
