Maybe they think its good politics, but part of our job here is not to always think about politics. President Obama said 13 million rebates on health insurance went out to consumers in all 50 states last year, and another 8.5 million are going out this summer. The average rebate will be around $100, he said. Premiums also are coming down, he added, because of the limits on how much insurers will be able to spend on overhead as a result of the law. Insurers will have to spend between 80% and 85% of their revenue on health care. Read live blog on the speech. Now, I recognize that there are still a lot of folks in this town at least who are rooting for this law to fail. Some of them seem to think this laws about me. Its not.

October 2, 2012 at 16:05 | Report abuse | James PDX “But Saul has a different take on the ACA. “The simple truth is this: The American people do not want this law, we cannot afford this law, and when Mitt Romney is president he will repeal it and replace it with common-sense, patient-centered reforms that strengthen our health care system.”” And yet a few weeks before the election Romney still cannot tell us the details of how his plan will work.
