    “A recent McKinsey report that found that 70 percent of the products offered on the exchanges are either “narrow” or “ultra-narrow” products, meaning they include fewer than 70 percent of the local hospitals in their networks.”

    Well that’s not good.

    This would be great, if it actually held true.

  3. Elizabeth says:

    “WellPoint Inc. (WLP), the second-biggest U.S. medical insurer, has added 500,000 members since Obamacare enrollment began and said the system’s early stumbles haven’t dimmed profit estimates, boosting the company’s shares.”
    Is that…is that good news, I see?

    • Nancy says:

      I can’t tell. It’s been too long since I’ve seen good news for me to know anymore.

      • Ted says:

        The prognosis helped WellPoint shares overcome a 68 percent decline in fourth-quarter net income. – it looks like if it holds up, it’s going to be good news.

    • Nancy says:

      Wait. Keep reading. “The news wasn’t all good. WellPoint said last-minute rule changes by the Obama administration are likely to reduce profit by $100 million this year.”

  4. Jane says:

    ” 3 million young adults under age 26 have been able to stay on their parents’ plans under the law.” – You know, as a student, I’m really ok with this provision of ObamaCare.

  5. Steve says:

    Under the law, states can expand coverage to all those under 138 percent of the federal poverty level, about $26,951 for a family of three, with the federal government picking up 100 percent of the cost for the first three years.

    That’s a lot of money for the government to just be picking up the tab.

  6. Perry says:

    “39% of the uninsured: ObamaCare has made us worse off.”

    Wow, that’s a blow to the administration.

  7. Thomas says:

    “Obamacare’s approval rating is at an all-time low with only 24% of respondents indicating a favorable view.”

    If that isn’t the signal the nation is sending to the government that we don’t want Obamacare, I don’t know what is.
