Obamacare Makes Health Care Rates Go UP — Way Up! by The Elephant's Child

In California, state regulators have allowed Anthem Blue Cross to move ahead with rate hikes, which average 14%.  Blue Shield of California is allowed by regulators to move ahead with rate increases — averaging 19% and as high as 29% — for 250,000 individual California policyholders.  Anthem’s original plan was to increase premiums as much as 39%, but they got a lot of criticism from consumers regulators and even President Obama.   A consultant found math errors.

Here in Washington State, we just got notification of a 16% rate hike.  Welcome to ObamaCare.  Eventually government insurance will begin to look cheap — but that was the plan all along. They promised that ObamaCare would save money, their ideas would make health care more efficient, everyone would be insured, preventative care would save money,  computerizing health care would save money.  All lies.  All Lies.  All Lies.
