it's not that hard... Everytime Duke has some weird expenses they ask for rate hike and it approved. Duke got penalized for coal Ashe and little birdie told me to expect rate hike next year and it will be approved again. Insurance companies will do the same.
Most companies have plans and very active in tackling health issues like smoking, weight gain and other stuff. Majority of medical issues caused by quality of life. People with little income will buy cheaper meat, eat out at shitty restaurants and will settle for pizza (900 colories per slice) on Friday night. They less likely to exercise and be able to afford $15 bottle of red wine. I just described 60% of US population. Most people with low income work for smaller corporations and private companies. These are the people that will be effected the most. Do you think taking even more money out of their income will change their quality of life?
Private companies can barely afford paying for high insurance costs for employees as it is... If rate hike happen, many companies will not be able to provide employees with insurance, forcing them to apply with Obamacare or pay penalty. Then, pro Obamacare people will scream "See, people applying, it must be working!" To give you an example, I worked for 300 employee company last year and health insurance was an absolute joke... It had $5k deductible and covered only 50% for anything major to $20k, after that it was 100% coverage. So if you in need of a surgery, you required to pay $12.5k out of pocket ($22.5k a year!). Employees had to pay $10k a year for insurance (family plan) while company paid $1.5m a year. So insurance cost per family on average a year was $15k. If they increase this cost by 25%, who's going to pay for it? This whole insurance is a fuging rip off. i work for huge corporation where I pay only $50 biweekly for badass insurance for me and my son... Smaller companies will get absolutely destroyed and people will be forced to sign up for Obamacare. No way majority of private companies can afford another huge hike.
Manchester United will sale De Gea. Madrid will want to buy De Gea. De Gea want to join Madrid... Mutual agreement will be reached.
Liverpool doing a lot of good business so far... Firmino £29m, Clyne £10m, Kovacic £16m and Ings £6m... That's £61m already spent. But Liverpool still needs a striker... Ings is nothing more but a decent back-up. Rotoworld reports that Liverpool are still very interested in Benteke but not at £32m price. Multiple reports say that Liverpool will cave in at the end and buy Benteke for £32m (due to very limited options without CL). I assumed if Liverpool spents almost £100m they would almost have to sell Sterling to offset the cost.
