OBAMA LIED: New Obamacare Law Is Already Forcing Premiums to Double in Some States

In 2010 Barack Obama said insurance premiums will decrease by 3,000% so you should get a raise when Obamacare passes.

But that was before the bill was passed.
Now it looks like some customers will see their insurance premiums double.

The New York Times

Health insurance companies across the country are seeking and winning double-digit increases in premiums for some customers, even though one of the biggest objectives of the Obama administration’s health care law was to stem the rapid rise in insurance costs for consumers.

Particularly vulnerable to the high rates are small businesses and people who do not have employer-provided insurance and must buy it on their own.

In California, Aetna is proposing rate increases of as much as 22 percent, Anthem Blue Cross 26 percent and Blue Shield of California 20 percent for some of those policy holders, according to the insurers’ filings with the state for 2013. These rate requests are all the more striking after a 39 percent rise sought by Anthem Blue Cross in 2010 helped give impetus to the law, known as the Affordable Care Act, which was passed the same year and will not be fully in effect until 2014.

In other states, like Florida and Ohio, insurers have been able to raise rates by at least 20 percent for some policy holders. The rate increases can amount to several hundred dollars a month.

    Well, surprise, SURPRISE!!!

    Saint Obama lies through is teeth AGAIN, or, in 2010, he was blithering about something he knew NOTHING about – both of these are pretty much the same, and the mark of scumbag politician.

    Oh, well – the people always vote for the political scumbags they deserve, and whom they get. And, I am sure Saint Obama will blame these increases on EVIIIL GWB

    I fear the actual costs of Obamacare are going to exponentially exceed the projections.

    Just what will the Ministry of Lies plan for programming the public mind into accepting the pain this government creates ?

    They have already succeeded at inverting every good into evil and every evil into good …. blaming every innocent for guilt and pardoning every guilt for innocent………

    Obamunism is going to have to create an entirely new alphabet language or breed a mutated species of human being to keep up with the rising dependancy on deception and lies for our survival . Look out for a revival in the Nazi use of Druid Runic letters in official government Newspeak . ..> http://viking.no/images/runer.gif

    Plenty more bad news to come from this repulsive regime, yet the interesting question is HOW LONG it will take 2x Obama voters to come to grips with the fact they ‘made history’ by screwing the pooch, BIG time

    Since Obamacarlessness was passed; our Healthnet family HSA (7500 deduct!) has gone up over 100% in 3 huge steps. We now have pay for a bunch of coverage we do not want or need (pregnancy at 59???) States like CA are making it worse with all sorts of first dollar “free” coverage that goes beyond DumBHO’s monstrosity

    The whole idea is to make it so the insurance companies are forced out of business and the peasants will become dependent on the socialist health insurance system being run by a bunch of no-account bureaucrats. People complain about private health insurance but when there is a disagreement, the insured at least has the opportunity to take it to the state’s insurance commission for redress. With the feds in charge? You have nowhere to go. All those idiots out there have no clue as to how bad it will get when they find themselves very ill.

    Of course we won’t address the consequences of those pesky taxes against medical devices. Don’t forget how this law will affect those evil big pharma’s and any advances in medical treatment for Alzheimer’s, cancers, heart disease and diabetes, to name a few. And let us not forget AIDs. Sorry, you lose too.

    After all, it’s most important that we don’t allow any person or company to profit more than we think they should. After all, it really is our money; not theirs. They don’t need to put their profits back into research anymore. god Barry will start healing the sick any day now.

    You doctors. Heads up, people. He’s coming for you next. Watch and listen for signs of criticism about you earning more than you should to treat the suffering masses. They’ll start whining about how it’s not right for you to get rich off the poor wretched sick folk. Never mind that it took mega bucks and many years for you to start seeing any kind of decent earnings. You owe it to humanity to put your “skin in the game.”

    Oh, it’s going to be fun to watch.

    More and more retired people on medicare are paying additional monthly charges for that “benefit”.

    These retirees paid the designated medicare fees out of every one of their paychecks during their entire work history.

    But if their monthly income is more than the US government deems appropriate, then those retirees are charged additional money for the “benefits” they diligently paid for their entire working lives.

    Of course, that money has nothing to do with their benefits, but everything to do with those people who get benefits and never paid or paid minimally into the system.

    Let’s remember that our incomes are already taxed yearly by the US government and many State Governments.

    Something stinks, and the smell can be directly traced to Washington.

    It seems to me this was discussed at length back in 2009 when this went down. This is just the tip of the iceberg. Once marginal employers like Walmart all cancel their employee insurance & dump everyone into exchanges or Medicaid, private insurance rates will go up alot more than 20%. As more people are steered into Medicaid plans with their nominal reimbursement rates, private rates will increase correspondingly to take up the slack.

    Of course this was all as intended. Crash the private system & blame the insurers for the rate increases, instead of the hugh influx of Medicaid patients with their below cost reimbursement rates.

    This ain’t gonna’ be pretty. But then the crises ensues & in swoops single payer. Bet the house on it.
