Double-digit ObamaCare premium hikes projected in 2017

by  |  published on June 16, 2016

Americans in markets across the country could be looking at double-digit premium hikes under ObamaCare next year, according to a new study that’s already fueling election-year finger-pointing.

The Kaiser Family Foundation report found premiums for popular low-cost plans under the health care law are projected to increase an average 11 percent in 2017.

Among the sharpest projected increases are: 26 percent in Portland, Ore.; 21 percent in the District of Columbia; and 16 percent in New York City.

The study focused on the two least-expensive — and very popular — “silver” policies. It specifically examined the impact of rising premiums on those whose income exceeds the limit to get government subsidies to defray the cost of mandatory insurance.

    It was always Obama’s openly declared plan to “fundamentally transform America”. Just as he promised to be transparent, he certainly has been. That is, he was/ transparent to many of us who knew this type of destruction was coming and took the heat for having voiced it time and again. There’s little satisfaction in saying this about one who holds the highest office in the land, but it is not the Presidency that is doing this, it is the poor excuse for a real man that is. The Fraud-in-Chief is not one of us, don’t forget that. He has never validated his citizenship as all his “documents” (short and long form birth certificates, draft registration, etc) were poor forgeries at best as proven by Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s task force of document experts, all of which have pretty much been scrubbed for the internet.

    However, putting “birther” issues aside, as a bonafide American citizen, any number of things he has done to destroy the country would have had him removed from power and hung for treason not too many years ago. Years ago that is, before studying the Constitution and loyalty to country were wiped out of our schools and replaced with “social justice” and political correctness.

    Remember too, that he told America that if push comes to shove, he will stand with the Muslims. Well, he’s keeping that promise alright and even now when the twisted, savage, radicals amongst them are brutally slaughtering innocents by the thousands, he turns a blind eye and supports them with vigor.
    The question is no longer “Why?” because the answer is the elephant in the room – he is one of them in very which way. The real question for all Americans should be “Why do we let this person who detests everything America stands for continue to get away with it?” Would any of our forefathers have let this happen?

    It seems that Obamacare is working just as planned, Destroy our healthcare system like everything else in this country!! All the many thousands of $$$ that was used to set up this scam, and it is still a failure! Like all of his other failures that has cost millions of $$$$ and none of the money has been found anywhere and nobody knows anything, but ISIS continues to Thrive some how, right Obama and Hellary!!
