My Family Health Plan Is Going Up 10% This Year

Mr. LC and I purchase our health insurance through our family business. I just received a notice informing us that the cost of the group plan that covers our family is rising by 10% a year beginning in April. A separate letter indicated that part of the increase is due to federal mandates regarding women’s reproductive services. We pay more for health insurance than we do for our mortgage.

So much for the promise of Obama and the Democrats that Obamacare would bring down the cost of health premiums. Thanks to them, premiums rise every year. It will only get worse when they pass immigration reform and flood the system with new benefit recipients.
