Rate Shock: In California, Obamacare To Increase Individual Health Insurance Premiums By 64-146%

Avik Roy, Contributor

Last week, the state of California claimed that its version of Obamacare’s health insurance exchange would actually reduce premiums. “These rates are way below the worst-case gloom-and-doom scenarios we have heard,” boasted Peter Lee, executive director of the California exchange. But the data that Lee released tells a different story: Obamacare, in fact, will increase individual-market premiums in California by as much as 146 percent.

Pay up bitches!
It's even worse because the Obama base won't pay any premiums. They will get free health care while you pay for it.

already happening across the country, not just Ca.

Before the garbage passed we were at $105/wk family coverage.
18 months after passing we went to $156/wk
Last increase in May went to $223/wk.
My employer is paying 50% of the total putting it just over $23k per year. It is expected to go up further next year.

Told all my American friends this would happen. We pay high taxes for our "free" health ins. And you'll eventually pay high premiums on your free for the poor only health care ins. Ha, now feel our wallets pain.

At this point nobody can actually act surprized at all this crap. Didn't we all catch on when government declared they were going to make health care affordable ? They've never made anything affordable. The genie is out the bottle, good luck getting it back in. It was never about health care......it's about separating you and your money. They're running out of things to tax, the list is already as long as your leg. They tax the shit out of us and none of it is spent here at home. We could have FREE health care just on the foreign aid budget, but I guess it's sefish to expect OUR government to look out for our better intrests...that we PAY for.

Hey wait our system turns out to be the better one now. At least rich or poor, if you buy anything. Or any service. You will contribute something to the system. Your buy your own ins way of doing things. means only whoever can afford ins will end up paying for those who can't. But then again. Soon only the top 1% will be paying for the countries health ins.

We all know it's going to raise our rates, but, just think of how much money it's going to save us by not paying as much in taxes for all those on medicaid. What? We will still be paying for those worthless fux that don't do anything? WTF is this POS bill do for anyone other than allow the govt to take in the same amount of taxes but also raise our health insurance rates by 60-146%? Isn't this basically a 60-146% raise in taxes with a shorter paycheck since we can no longer work a full 40 hours due to obamacare? This POS needs to GO

No, in general individual rates are much much much cheaper come Jan. Most people at this point can't get individual insurance, see what it costs if your only preexisting condition is even hay fever.
