Obamacare Directly Causing Health Insurance Premiums to Rise



Who says Obamcare isn’t already affecting Americans’ bottom line? President Obama’s Obamacare ‘big flinch’ was by design, and aimed specifically at taking away the key argument that Republicans will use against Democrats in the 2014 mid term elections-small businesses will be hurt by the healthcare law.

Senator Marco Rubio echoes what his colleague Ted Cruz and other Republican and conservative officials are saying, in that “ObamaCare is a disaster in progress that will hurt job creators and those looking for work. The solution to ObamaCare is not to delay the day when the Internal Revenue Service comes after struggling American businesses who cannot afford to provide Washington mandated health coverage. The solution is to repeal it entirely.”

Since Obamacare’s inception, millions of Americans, who had once  benefited from the low premiums that health insurance companies had offered, are now seeing their premiums gradual rise, as these same companies are beginning realize the increasing costs involved with the full implementing of Obama’s disastrous healthcare law.

Consumers are not alone, Doctors and medical facilities are also feeling the pinch, as the healthcare insurance companies continue to trim spending by denying tests, procedures and services.

Over the past 2 years, I have personally seen my health insurace premium almost double, and now my carrier is finally admitting that the rise in my healthcare insurance premium is a direct  result of Obamacare.

Look at the letter I received a couple of weeks ago from Florida Blue, aka Blue Cross & Blue Shield.

“We want to let you know that your health care coverage will be effected by the health care reform law taking effect in January”-Florida Blue

To add insult to injury, literally, Florida Blue has just denied an MRI my Orthopedic surgeon prescribed for my left knee. Nice.
