Prices for medicine, doctor appointments and health insurance rose the most last month since 1984. The price increases come amid a broader debate about climbing health care costs and high premiums for Obamacare coverage.

All aboard for the Single Payer Express!
Besides the higher premiums, people are starting to face the fact that the promise of lower premiums came at a price of much higher deductibles. Once they were hit with the first few medical bills and realized they were on the hook for them, many stopped taking the insurance. Nice system! /s
God help us if Hillary wins, as bad as it is now, I can see healthcare all but vanishing under her.
And they had the gall to name it the “Affordable” Health Care act.
I do believe that if Zero and his cohorts, you know the names, thought they could get by with it, the “Deplorables” would be hauled off in boxcars and put in camps, ya think?
Damn! I wonder why?..................
As someone already pointed out, once you factor in the horrendous deductibles, it’s pretty much already vanished. Poof!
The good news is, that the chocolate rations have been raised to 25 grams per week.
I want to see first Jonathan Gruber drawn and quartered, and then go up the chain from there.
Arrogant social engineers and devious politicians are crushing the average citizen under their wheels.
No way !

“All aboard for the Single Payer Express!”
Don’t know whether we could have a “good” single payer system or not, but it would have to be done right, and there is no chance that our politicians can do it right.

I think you are overoptimistic. If I have stuff lying around that I consider deplorable I don’t put it in storage. I think that should be enough said.
Where’s that LIKE button?
If you want to make something more expensive, subsidize it.
Yeah. And food and beverages up less than 10% over ten years. Bull!
10 years ago, the housing bubble burst, so even though it has recovered it is still down.
