We received a letter from our insurance carrier stating that effective
January 1, 2014 our current health plan is being discontinued because
of the new Affordable Health Care plan (Obamacare). Our current rates
that were supposed to be locked in until July 1, 2014 have been voided
and our rates will be increased $142.00 per month, a 32.3 percent
increase, per policy. I talked to a young lady today whose premiums
are increasing $105.00 per month or 64.4 percent because of
“Obamacare.” Also, our deductible went from $2,500 up to $4,000.
I remember when Senator Harry Reid called George W. Bush “Hitler.”
What should we call [him] for his “inaccurate” statements and promises
about the Affordable Health Care Act? If I lived in Nevada, I would be
first in line to have him recalled. By the way, Senator Reid’s
Washington, D.C. phone number is 202/224-3542.
