“In my home state of North Carolina, average premiums on the individual market have gone up by $422 per month, or more than $5,000 a year, since 2013. Consider the impact on someone with a $50,000 salary. Making matters worse, 95 out of 100 counties in North Carolina have only one carrier – Blue Cross & Blue Shield, and even BCBS seriously considered pulling out last year. Aetna, Humana, and United Healthcare have also pulled out of ObamaCare markets nationwide.
The results in North Carolina are not anomalies. Nationwide, average premiums have gone up by nearly $3,000 under ObamaCare. Quite the opposite from what President Obama promised when he said a typical family’s premiums would go down by $2,500.”
