"The federal Affordable Care Act will lead to an increase in health insurance coverage and higher enrollment among people who purchase individual policies, according to a new RAND Corporation study.
While there have been some reports that the cost of individual policies may jump sharply under health reform, a RAND analysis of 10 states and the United States overall predicts that there will be no widespread premium increase in the individual health insurance market."

According to Wikipedia:

RAND Corporation is a nonprofit global policy think tank currently financed by the U.S. government and private endowment, corporations including the healthcare industry, universities and private individuals.

Now there's some unbiased "research" for you!

believe an old man on medicare ?!

Liars come in at all ages, especially those who vote for Maoist-totalitarianism.

Seems like the RAND Corporation can't even pick up the newspapers of the last several years. People have been socked already with big increases in premiums, or by reductions in weekly hours (to fall under the Obamacare mandate line).

I think much of what is being parroted is the work of corporate media. While not perfect the Affordable Care Act begins to address our out-of-control healthcare system. Time will tell as this new system unfolds.

Statements made are the opinion of the writer who is exercising his first amendment right to freedom of speech. Freedom of speech in the United States is protected by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution and are generally permitted.

Time will tell on Green energy boondoggles also.
And, that laser like focus on jobs is too early in its nascent stage to tell what its doing.
Plus, banking & finance reform is a success waiting to bloom.
And, since our borders are more secure than its been in decades,illegal immigration is in a stage that is too early to discuss its success that's coming soon.

And Syria, is a success without doing one thing !

Old men with Alzheimer's, should never be allowed to post lies, nonsense, and delusions, just to support a fascist.

Obamacare does nothing to "address our out-of-control healthcare system" since by (1) forcing people to buy insurance, and (2) forcing more care to be subsidized, therefore the end result will be costs spiralling more out of control.

No Liberal will admit this. At least the unions are now starting to squawk. Of course they are just looking for a special deal for themselves, which is why so many waivers were handed out in the beginning.

I think it's time the UAW opts into this most excellent system, even if it means MY costs will go up. SOLIDARITY FOREVER!
