How about we make up our own chart of "What ObamaCare has done to you". Pointing out all the ways ObamaCare actually lowers ones quality of life.

-Raises actual costs of medical treatments.

-Lowers quality of medical treatments.

-Robs you of a potentially greater quality of life had future medical innovations not been obstructed.

-Lowers economic productivity in general and hence lowers your future standard of living.

-Further wounds individual rights and brings objective rule of law closer to an end.

-Empowers shmoozers and social palm-greasers to trample over anyone without clout.

etc. etc.

I have a friend with private insurance who just got a similar letter along with a 70% increase in premium cost. That's just the beggining though. Wait until the purchase is mandated in 2014 and the insurance idustry gets a flood of irrationally increased demand. Thank god for price controls...;)

You have to understand however, that to them before this was done it was market forces that were charging them $150,000 medical bills for an emergency or otherwise necessary surgery when they have a $30,000 income. They don't care nor understand. They will take the lower quality if it means not losing their livelihood because of an unfortunate accident due to our horribly messed up medical sector.
