Is Trump the Rx for Obamacare Premium Hikes?

by FOXNews.com  |  published on October 27, 2016

TrumpNewly announced double-digit premium hikes for those on the ObamaCare exchanges are handing Donald Trump a political weapon in key swing states where residents could be facing rate increases even higher than the national average.

The administration announced Monday that premiums for a midlevel plan are set to rise an average of 25 percent in 2017 in the 39 states that use the federal HealthCare.gov. The rate hikes vary widely across different cities and states, but several battlegrounds could be facing increases that are considerably higher.

According to administration figures, the average premium increase for a popular “silver” plan will rise 116 percent in Arizona; 40 percent in North Carolina; and 53 percent in Pennsylvania.

    I LOVE how Obama said it is not HIS fault that premiums are going up. WHO’S IS IT THEN? If not the fault of the person who used bribery, blackmail and racism to get the vote through, then who’s is it? Can he and his minions actually wish to blame this debacle on the Republicans, who he constantly whined about how none had voted for because of racism? What about blaming Bush, his favorite whipping boy for the last 8 years? Since it was passed AFTER Bush left office, how could it be his fault? Trump may not be the answer, but he will surely be better than one who campaigned for it, Hillary

    This country has to wake up and realize that the Obama administration had only one plan for this country. That plane is and has been to turn this nation into a Muslim strong hold. You don’t have to be a mental giant to figure this out. Just look at the facts. It is so obvious that it blows my mind that everyone has not figured it out by now. Wake up America. And you can be sure that Clinton will be even worse.

  • JIMBO

    Trump is the only person that can and will turn this country around. We cant be overwhelmed by all the the liberal media lies that are desperately trying to get Clinton elected. This women is evil and will finish the job,that Obama started, of destroying this country.

  • Andy Palmer

    Surely the people in Arizona, who are staring a 116% increase in the face, will have the good sense to vote for Trump. Anyone who doesn’t is an utter fool. Same thing in Minn, Penn, North Carolina, Florida, Michigan, Wisconsin, and every other state that is being abused by the absurdity of Obamacare.

  • David Stewart

    Lying Dims on t.v. keep insisting there is no increase; Fed contribution will take up the slack! Hey, sh#% for brains, that’s our money, too!

  • Dan

    Health insurance was never supposed to cost more than a mortgage payment. They’ve killed the American Dream.

      UNLESS…….The Obama Snafu Express is DERAILED

      The only thing good about the ACA is pre existing is not banned but that could have been passed by congress without 2700 pages of a useless bill that the SC called a tax bill. We will suffer under it until 2025 .
