    Well as predicted the goal of Obamacare is to wreck the private insurance market to force single payer which is the real goal. We'll be as bad off as Greece in a few years.

    Talk about cherry-picking!!

    This is but just one of 4 estimates given by The CBO - and it is the "worst case scenerio" estimate.

    http://www.cbo.gov/sites/default/files/cbofiles/attachments/03-15-ACA_and_Insurance.pdf

    Key Findings Summary:

    CBO and JCT continue to expect that the ACA will lead to a small reduction in employment-based health insurance. That projection arises from the agencies' modeling of the many changes in opportunities and incentives facing employers and employees under the ACA, and it is consistent with the findings of other analysts who have carefully modeled the nation’s health insurance system.

    Significant changes in some of the key assumptions underlying the estimates lead to somewhat higher or lower projections of the change in employment-based health insurance and the budgetary impact of the ACA. However, differences in the projected change in employment-based health insurance tend to have limited effects on the projected budgetary impact of the law because changes in the availability and take-up of such insurance affect the federal budget through several channels that are partly offsetting. Indeed, one scenario examined here shows that larger reductions in employment-based health insurance than expected by CBO and JCT might lower rather than raise the cost of the insurance coverage provisions of the ACA.

    In CBO and JCT's judgment, a sharp decline in employment-based health insurance as a result of the ACA is unlikely and, if it occurred, would not dramatically increase the cost of the ACA.

    Nobody got to "opt out." What they got were waivers - which apply only to one specific part of The Health Care Law. The waivers are for a single provision of the healthcare reform law: its restrictions on annual benefit limits.

    And even those waivers run out in 2014 when all plans will have to comply with the new provisions.
