As anyone who watches Fox News, the Affordable Care Act, Obamacare, is going to be a train wreck. Hartzler tweeted the following:
My hat’s off to Sen. Ted Cruz & Senate Republicans highlighting how ObamaCare is a train wreck hurting hardworking Americans & killing jobs.
On Monday, I received the following e-mail from the HR department at the university I teach.
On Sept 20, 2014, [the] Board of Governors voted to go with our existing health care provider Blue Cross/Blue Shield. Overall premium increase to the plan this year is 1.6%. Remarkable given that 1% of that increase is attributed to the implementation of the Affordable Care Act. Individual and family plan increases will range from 1.47% to 2% depending on the option selected.
A 1% increase is due to Obamacare. Terrible.
That raised an interesting question: what have been the increases for the last several years?
I asked. Do you want to guess?
Here is the response I got back:
The increase for 2012 was 5.1%, for 2013 was 4.65% and as . . . mentioned [in the previous e-mail] it will be an overall of 1.6% for 2014.
What a train wreck!!!!
After 5.1% and 4.65% increases, Obamacare results in a 1.5% increase.
Obviously we are on the road to perdition.
What is happening with your employer-provided healthcare?
