ObamaCare was supposed to decrease heath insurance premiums. In fact, we were promised a $2500 DECREASE in ObamaCare Premiums. Instead, however, we are seeing vast INCREASES in premiums. I guess, just like the “If you like your plan” lie, and just like the “If you like your doctor” lie, the “premiums are going to go down” claim is every bit the lie as the first two. Wyblog has more…
Do you remember when Barack Obama told you the average family would save $2,500 a year under Obamacare?
Yeah, that was a lie, too.
Everything Obama says is a lie. Including “and” and “the.”
The United States has seen the sharpest increase in health insurance premiums in the last year than possibly ever, a new survey has found, and analysts have concluded the “increases are largely due to changes under the Affordable Care Act.”
According to Forbes Magazine, a quarterly survey by investment bank Morgan Stanley of 148 brokers who sell insurance showed that premiums accelerated in the last quarter more than of any of the 12 prior quarterly periods, a peak which has coincided with the run-up to the Obamacare deadline.
The average premium increases for insurance renewals in the most recent quarter were over 11 percent in the small group market and 12 percent in the individual market where consumers buy coverage directly from health plans. By comparison, the September survey showed that increases in the small group market averaged 3 percent, and 2 percent in the individual market.
In some states, increases have been 10 to 50 times those averages, according to Forbes. For the individual insurance market, premiums have increased an average of 100 percent in Delaware, 90 percent in New Hampshire, 54 percent in Indiana, 53 percent in California, 45 percent in Connecticut, and 37 percent in Florida.
For the small group market, Washington had an average increase of 588 percent, followed by Pennsylvania at 66 percent, California at 37 percent, and Indiana at 34 percent.
If you voted for Obama, you voted for this. You were warned, but you chose to listen to idiots (MSNBC) and liars. (democrats). Millions have lost their plans, or doctors. And now, most of the rest are going to pay, and pay, and pay. Then, if they can’t afford to pay, they still will pay the tax. In liberal land, even if you don’t pay, you still pay. That’s life under ObamaCare, and it’s just the beginning.
