Personal insurance rates skyrocketing

  • Article
text size: AAA

According to a letter I received from my insurer, starting in January 2014, insurance rates for an adult with one child will almost double for the same coverage with a higher deductible.

How is that helping the middle class person? This is insane. If you raise the current deductible 10 times what your current premium cost is, you would be paying about the same in 2014.

With a $6,000 deductible, I guess that when you really get sick, you are really in trouble. I now know how the middle class is going to pay for Obamacare for those who cannot pay.

From what I was told, if you cannot pay the premium, you get a tax break or credit to help you pay. Well, my question is if this is for the poor people cannot pay, how do they get a credit if they do not work and do not pay taxes?

I have never heard of something so stupid in my life. Frustrated and outraged.
