Anyways the chart is flawed, its a current snapshot of the 80% who have employer healthcare stress current snapshot, the trend already taking place is employer healthcare plans are being cancelled forcing these 80% into the exchanges 1 by 1, in these exchanges the vast majority of these 80% who are employed won't qualify for subsidies so they will end up paying double what they once did.
You're dismissing the chart because it doesn't fit with your belief. And you're shouting "cancelled" for dramatic effect.
But here's what conservatives won't tell you, lest it undermine their theatrics: Many insurance plans are shutting down because they don't meet the higher bar of quality benefits required under Obamacare, and of those people who lose access to their plans, many will pay less and all will have better and more comprehensive options...
This whole kerfuffle ignores that insurance plans were changing all the time and premiums were skyrocketing pre-Obamacare. Suddenly, a whole range of bad behavior on the part of insurance companies is blamed on the Affordable Care Act.
