    Just wait until the 1 year delay of the employer mandate expires.

    Obama insisted anew Thursday that the problem is limited to people who buy their own insurance. “We’re talking about 5 percent of the population who are in what’s called the individual market. They’re out there buying health insurance on their own,” he told NBC.

    But a closer examination finds that the number of people who have plans changing, or have already changed, could be between 34 million to 52 million. That’s because many employer-provided insurance plans also could change, not just individually purchased insurance plans.

    Administration officials decline to say how many employer-sponsored plans could change. But those numbers could be between 23 million to 41 million, based on a McClatchy analysis of estimates offered by the Department of Health and Human Services in June 2010.

    Why can't you make one thread and post updates to it? If you start a new thread each time you post, you ruin it for anyone looking for a discussion.

    I think you're forgetting that his intent is disrupt the forum, rather than to stimulate any meaningful debate.
