Kathleen Sebelius has sent letters to insurance agencies warning them to shut up and not explain to people why Obamacare has forced them to raise rates
Many independant studies have shown that Obamacare will increase costs. CBO study has shown that many families will pay an additional $2100 a year by 2016 as a DIRECT result of Obamacare
wow, that's pretty bold. Especially since it's up to the insurance companies to figure out how much the new law is going to cost them. Since they will be forced to insure some people that they would have elected not to before, it's safe to say their costs will rise, which of course, gets passed on to the consumer.
Friday: I'm skeptical believing that Obamacare is at fault and not just the usual money hungry execs trying to line their pockets. The ins companies just have a readily available 'reason' this year.
Wasn't ObamaCare suppose to bring the cost DOWN for ALL American's?? Looks more like ObamaCare had a target market in mind to ensure 'certain Americans' were covered... Then SCREW the rest of the Americans. Let them eat Cake.... Just make sure it is all natrual-sugar free cake that Michelle endorses.. ;o)

She better go after the Medicare Actuaries too. Afterall, they were the one's who said " White House number "does not provide a meaningful or accurate indication" of the effect of the health care law."

Here's a link to the letter she wrote. I'm pretty sure the .gov address means it's the exact letter.
It has come to my attention that several health insurer carriers are sending letters to their enrollees falsely blaming premium increases for 2011 on the patient protections in the Affordable Care Act. I urge you to inform your members that there will be zero tolerance for this type of misinformation and unjustified rate increases.
...here ya go, grlygrlz2!

What was causing increases last year, and the year before that? What a load of shit.
"Health reform makes health care more affordable".... Hrmmmmm~ not what Medicare, more and more States, Corporations, and some insurance companies have said... ObamaCare was suppose to LOWER costs for ALL Americans... Obama Lied. Just admit it.. ;o)
