However, a study by the journal Health Affairs said more than half of Americans who had individual insurance in 2010 were enrolled in plans that would not qualify because they didn't meet all the new requirements. To add the benefits Obamacare requires, insurance companies have to raise premiums, so that sick people and those who are in good health pay the same amounts. Yes, you can keep your health care plan, but costs will go through the roof.
Residents in Liberal mecca San Francisco are finding this out. One Obama supporter reports that his premiums went up $10,000 a year. Suddenly he understand the point Republicans have been making for the last three years. Another woman's premiums increased by $1200, and she's bewildered. ""Of course, I want people to have health care. I just didn't realize I would be the one who was going to pay for it personally."
