Oh No! Obamacare Is Going to Work!

Fun fact: This has nothing to do with healthcare, but the woman in the picture is
Rep. Cathy Rogers (R-WA). She's in almost all pictures of the House leadership
because, look, we're not all white males! I didn't know her, either, always wondered.

California has already reported that healthcare rates under Obama's healthcare insurance exchanges will be substantially lower than expected. The linked article mentions that similar rates are popping up in Oregon and Washington, as well.

In today's New York Times, we find out that Obamacare is going to drastically reduce healthcare costs in New York:
Individuals buying health insurance on their own will see their premiums tumble next year in New York State as changes under the federal health care law take effect, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo announced on Wednesday.
State insurance regulators say they have approved rates for 2014 that are at least 50 percent lower on average than those currently available in New York. Beginning in October, individuals in New York City who now pay $1,000 a month or more for coverage will be able to shop for health insurance for as little as $308 monthly. With federal subsidies, the cost will be even lower.
 The GOP reaction to such news was to vote to repeal Obamacare for the 38th and 39th time. Smart, really smart. Remind me next time I want something cool, really cool to happen to benefit Americans that I should look to Republicans for help. Or not.

We tried fucking up healthcare and couldn't do it. Don't
worry, we'll probably find something we can fuck up.
