ObamaCare price hikes hit 'red states' hardest



And the hits just keep acoming.

quote:

Experiencing sticker-shock at the price of insurance on ObamaCare exchanges?

That's more likely if you live in a "red state" that didn't vote for Obama, according to price data compiled by the Heritage Foundation. In red states, premiums for 27-year-olds rose an average of 78% on ObamaCare exchanges, whereas in "blue states" that voted for Obama, premiums rose a smaller 50%.

Senate critics of ObamaCare say the difference is one way in which the bill is unfair.

"It’s unfair, outrageous and unacceptable," Senator John Barrasso, R-Wyo., who is also an orthopedic surgeon, said in a statement to FoxNews.com.

Looking forward to some cooler temps and a little hunting. Trying to get away from society for a few days.

Valerie Jarret said, 'pay back time' and it won't be the first time Obama punishes his political opponents. I was going to say dem states are messed up economically; but then again, their costs should be higher as most states that are dem strongholds have a higher COLA.

So, the logic to this is a mystery or simple Chicago style, thug political payback?

Wow. Obama said they'd go DOWN $2,500. But they've gone up 78% in red states and 50% in blue states. What a fricking shite show.

And where's Vegas Bengal and her defense of this crap? Oh, she's in another thread castigating a former poster who had a wrong prediction about the Romney/Obama election.

I read a report on this recently and the reason for this is , naturally, conservative states don't have as many regulations and minimum requirements as the blue states due. Therefore red states are seeing the costs go up more because they did not have as many things in place already.

That makes some sense.....Once again the blue states are so much more advanced than us red states.. For example city workers in San Francisco were getting sex change operations which was covered by their insurance.

Isn't this due to rural areas having higher premiums that high-density city areas?

I thought I read awhile back that because there is less competition in the more rural areas they don't have as much competing so their premiums are going through the roof.

It's not necessarily political, just another unfortunate side effect of a shitty law

Honest question:

Does this cost increase correlate to states that refused to set up their own exchanges and let the government run them?
