“I bought a catastrophic health policy for $170/mo when I left MSNBC,” Ratigan tweeted. “Obamacare cancelled the policy. New rate $600/mo. Thnx Mr. President!”
Obamacare supporters responded to Ratigan’s tweet by arguing that “he should welcome the elimination of his previous plan,” reports Mediaite.
Ratigan should consider himself lucky that his costs are only increasing by 350%. As Mike Adams reported last month, a couple in Texas revealed that the cost of their Humana policy was increasing by a whopping 539%, from $212.10 per month to $1,356.60 per month.
We also reported on a Texas man who told us that he would be forced to pay a 290% premium hike in order to avoid being fined under Obamacare.
A study by the Manhattan Institute found that Obamacare would increase health premiums by an average 99% for men and 62% for women, although many are being hit with hikes which amount to multiple times those figures.
