The final numbers are not yet in but according to this article from Forbes, the reality is more than just astounding it is an outrage beyond
Double Down: Obamacare Will Increase Avg. Individual-Market Insurance Premiums By 99% For Men, 62% For Women
Double Down!!! Did I read that right?
For months now, we’ve been waiting to hear how much Obamacare will drive up the cost of health insurance for people who purchase coverage on
their own. Last night, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services finally began to provide some data on how Americans will fare on Obamacare’s
federally-sponsored insurance exchanges. HHS’ press release is full of happy talk about how premiums will be “lower than originally expected.”
But the reality is starkly different.
27-year-olds will face rate increases as high as 279 percent
Based on a Manhattan Institute analysis of the HHS numbers, Obamacare will increase underlying insurance rates for younger men by an average
of 97 to 99 percent, and for younger women by an average of 55 to 62 percent. Worst off is North Carolina, which will see individual-market rates
triple for women, and quadruple for men.
And for the next level :
Where is the outrage? How long will these criminals continue to destroy the American way of life? Do these numbers look like anything that resembles a
positive future for healthcare or for the working class?
There is an interactive map on this link where you can check out some of the statistics for your part of the country, of course the numbers we have
today are a far cry from what those same numbers will look like by 2016 and beyond. Why don't people simply put that money away and just pay cash
when they go to the Doctor? If everyone did this it would change the face of healthcare and bypass the Governments criminal involvement.
