Default Insurance premiums to increase 50% next year

With Affordable Care Act’s Future Cloudy, Costs for Many Seem Sure to Soar - The New York Times

"Health insurers are aggressively increasing prices next year for individual policies sold under the federal health care law, with some raising premiums by more than 50 percent."

"In Georgia, the state insurance commissioner, Ralph T. Hudgens, an outspoken critic of the law, often referred to as Obamacare, said the rates he approved would be up to 57.5 percent higher next year. The state had already lost Anthem, the large insurer that offers for-profit Blue Cross plans in several states, which left many markets in Georgia."

My insurance has already gone through the ceiling. Hope this doesn't pan out and just a bunch of supposition.

How much of this increase is the administrations reluctance to approve waivers to states ?

I get that these waivers to states are part of OBama care, but why would you simply allow premiums to rise even further while you try and change the law ? Sort of making citizens pay for your frustrations.

WHY should there be waivers? And to whom? Which states? The ones FULL of minorities? The states being crushed by the poor needing welfare?

Actually, those are good points.

Inaction by our leaders is the signal for the medical community to have their way with “share holder value” while most of us are bent over holding our ankles. IMHO

Nobody will disagree, but it does seem a bit mean to KNOW your actions will raise premiums so high.

Ok, you failed getting repealed....is this payback to the citizens of the country ?

Nobody disagrees with the bad in Obamacare, but this admin failed to change it. They know what they are doing will simply hurt American citizens.

That is all I don't understand. I hate Obamacare, but why do this ?
