WTF is this crap? DH works for a health care company, he just started and we just got the information. That is double what it was at the last place he worked. And to top it off, his company doesn't accept the insurance!

 Obamacare is causing everything to rise.  We are lucky to have amazing insurance since DH works for the Government but I couldn't even imagine...

In that case it's cheaper to self pay and pay the penalty.

Obama care sucks.

I hate that this myth keeps getting repeated. Health care was rising long before Obama took office and would continue to rise with or without obamacare.

 Show me facts.  Obamacare is causing many families to dish out more money.  Are they rising at the same rate as before Obamacare?  Don't take this comment or question as snarky - I'm genuinly curious.

Not at this rate.

Holy crap, that is insanse. Ours has slightly risen each year, but this was by far the biggest jump. Not to mention, the awesome plan we have had for years was no longeer available and I am not happy about the one we switched to. Next year will be interesting. Blah.
