ObozoCare Elevator, You Get the Shaft

And away we go!!

....Insurers are upping premiums for all Obamacare exchange customers in Vermont, which is working its way to a single-payer health-care system to encompass the whole state by 2017. MVP Health Care has requested an average rate increase of 15.4 percent, while the only other insurer, Blue Cross Blue Shield, requested average hikes of 9.8 percent....

...While not all Arizona’s Obamacare insurers have submitted proposals, two top insurers are planning to up rates drastically: Cigna proposed average premium hikes of 14.4 percent and Humana requested a 25.5 percent boost....

...[In Connecticut]  Anthem Health Plans requested a 12.5 percent average increase, affecting 66,000 individual health care policies; ConnectiCare Benefits has proposed an 11.8 percent average rate increase

BONUS!!!  Those increases will be identical to the COST OF ELECTRICITY increases in Wisconsin beginning 2015 due to Obozo--who still thinks that the pen is mightier than the sword.

Obama/Romneycare is a noble idea that is utterly corrupt, does nothing to control costs and little to expand health care to those who needs it. Frankly, I lived in Canada. Their system isn't perfect but it beats the Hell out of Obama/Romneycare. At least everyone has coverage and the cost is spread so it is not disproportionately borne by business. It also allows small businesses to compete for talent. If we're going to have a law then we should take the Canadian model and improve it.
