Nothing affordable about the "affordable health care act".

I wrote a month or so back that I got a $500 check from Aetna as a rebate on my 2011 payments because the law now requires they spend at least 80% of premiums on, you know, health care, rather than limousines, hookers, and CEO bonuses.

Last week Aetna sent the annual renewal notice to Mrs. Goofy for her policy which every year tells us all the swell things they are doing to improve themselves, and, oh by the way, here's the rate increase. To our great surprise, for the first time EVER it is a decrease. It's only -$10 a month, but that is welcome since every year past it has gone up by +$20 or so. You suppose it could be linked to that 80% thing?

Sadly I will not be getting a check from them this year, or even having my rate lowered, since I am no longer a customer of Aetna. I have moved over of to some newfangled plan which is costing me significantly less, and having used it for 10 months and on several occasions with different doctors, I am highly satisfied. It is called "Medicare", and I don't know exactly how it works, but it is "single payer", whatever that means.

I just hope the government doesn't get ahold of it, or they will ruin it fer sure.
