We’ve covered it before, and it’s still happening. Health insurance premiums have taken off with the impending implementation of ObamaCare, and don’t appear to be slowing anytime soon. We covered the beginning of this just recently.
However, our friend Wyblog has the latest.
Obamacare: You get less than half the value at more than twice the price!
I think Democrats call that “fairness”.
Meanwhile in California, rates are going up twenty percent next year.
Blue Shield of California is calling for a 20% rate hike on some individual policyholders. The company expects higher costs from an influx of new customers under the federal healthcare law in 2014.
Remember when Obama said we’d save $2,500 per year on our health insurance?
Then there’s all the crippling taxes buried in Obamacare’s fine print. They had to pass the bill to find out what’s in it dontcha know. And when they found out, they weren’t happy.
Sixteen Democratic senators who voted for the Affordable Care Act are asking that one of its fundraising mechanisms, a 2.3 percent tax on medical devices scheduled to take effect January 1, be delayed. Echoing arguments made by Republicans against Obamacare, the Democratic senators say the levy will cost jobs — in a statement Monday, Sen. Al Franken called it a “job-killing tax” — and also impair American competitiveness in the medical device field.
Wait, raising taxes kills jobs? Why wasn’t I informed!
You mean, when the President promised that premiums would go down, they went up? You mean, it was “unexpected?” You mean, that it really is Cloward-Piven for private insurance? You mean, increasing the cost of doing business kills jobs? If only some Conservative Bloggers could have pointed that out!
