Major health insurers in some states are seeking increases as high as 30% or more for premiums on 2018 Affordable Care Act plans, according to new federal data that provide the broadest view so far of the turmoil across exchanges as companies try to anticipate Trump administration policies.
Increases in health insurance premiums and deductibles rested squarely on the Democrats’ Affordable Care Act (ACA, aka Obamacare).
Now that President Trump and Congressional Republicans attempted and failed to repeal and replace Obamacare, facts and reality are forcing the blame for the increases to be spread to them. So now Republicans share the blame with the Democrats.
Failure was not an option for President Trump and Republicans, and now we see the consequences of failure.
