Obamacare is proving to be a nightmare for the middle class, and even the politicians who once helped sell it to the public are now retreating.
In Minneapolis, where healthcare costs are mounting so steeply that individual payers will face 50% and even 67% premium increases next year, Democratic Governor Mark Dayton (who pushed Obama’s “affordable” health care act) is calling for changes to the law to stop the pain that it is causing.
According to WCCO in Minneapolis:
Gov. Mark Dayton made a stunning admission on Wednesday about rising health insurance costs and the future of MNsure.
“Ultimately I’m not trying to pass the buck here but the reality is the Affordable Care Act is no longer affordable,” Dayton said.
“The Affordable Care Act has many good features to it… but it’s got some serious blemishes right now and serious deficiencies,” Dayton said.
Premiums for 250,000 Minnesotans, or 5 percent of the population, insured under MNsure will skyrocket by 50 percent or more on some health plans.
