The Idaho Exchange executives are trying so hard to "spin" the premiums in a positive light that they're losing credibility.

REF: BOISE, Idaho: Idaho exchange board: Average policy costs $240 | State | Idahostatesman.com

They're gloating over the fact that the average cost for an Exchange plan in Idaho will be $240 per month for an individual. A couple of paragraphs later, they state that a family of four's premium is right at $1,000 per month.

$1,000 a month in premium + medical deductible + prescription cost-sharing, for a potential out-of-pocket exceeding $37,000 each year...and the Exchange & State leadership is HAPPY about it?!?!

This is why I call it ObamaCrap..............!

The only way to control costs is to regulate the health care industry and mandate publishing costs, sadly this will not happen because of to much special interest $$$ (over 5 Billion in last year) is going into the politician's pockets...

Time to clean house in DC..........
