In a recent letter to the US Department of Health and Human Services (USDHHS), Ralph Hudgens, insurance commissioner for the state of Georgia, reports that Georgia insurance companies have filed new rate plans under Obamacare that will increase insurance rates up to 198%. Hudgens goes on to demand that the USDHHS provide Georgia with an emergency 30 day delay of implementation so that Georgia may get its house in order before the massive hikes take place. He also requests that the department justify the massive increases, as they are directly contradictory to what the President had promised. Finally, he demanded a prompt response to this “emergency situation”.
-The USDHHS responded late the next afternoon, telling reporters they are reviewing Hudgens’ request.
Georgia isn’t alone. Ohio could see an increase of 88%. In Florida, business insurance rates will rise anywhere from 5 percent to 20 percent; individual plans are expected to increase 30 percent to 40 percent, on average. Tennessee is expecting a 30% increase. This pattern is repeated all over the country.
“Since this is clearly a disaster in the making, maybe Georgia policymakers would be better served to just tell the feds they have no intention of setting this monstrosity up, wash their hands of it and let the feds try to do it themselves. If enough states do this, Obamacare will collapse on its own and we’ll all be a lot better off,” said Tenth Amendment Center communications director, Mike Maharrey.
Maharrey tells us that the Tenth Amendment Center has been leading the charge around the country to nullify the Patient Care Act in each state. They have provided a 4 step process to end the law in each state.
