Obamacare premiums are going up
See Reich's FB comments. He notes this is largely due to 3 big carriers pulling out of the program because, well, they just can't make the (literal) killing they used to. Remember that the Obamacare model was a Republican model that Obama adopted to try and win over Republicans. Obamacare is only doing what Republicans designed it to do: create health insurance monopolies and fuck the public. That's why it's doubtful that Clinton can fix it. At least she says she'll offer a public option, which might create enough competition for the insurance monopolies to lower their rates. The best option is to fuck the insurance companies altogether and just offer a single payer system that will irreparably damage if not eliminate those blood suckers.
