GREENWOOD VILLAGE, Colo.—Millions of Americans will see the cost of their health insurance rise between 20 and 100 percent over the next couple of years, thanks to the Democrat’s Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, better known as Obamacare.
According to The Associated Press, the dramatic spike in health insurance costs will begin in January 2014, as Obamacare begins to take effect.
“Sen. Mark Udall, owes an apology to every person that will lose her job or health insurance because of this price hike,” Colorado Republican Committee Chairman Ryan Call said. “Sen. Udall was sent to Washington to fight on behalf of Colorado’s working families, but Obamacare will cost taxpayers an additional $1 trillion over the next decade and will make it much harder for employers to provide good health insurance benefits to their employees.”
The report further warned small business owners and other job creators to expect “volatility of cost on a month-to-month basis and even higher costs some years.”
Call added that Washington should be trying to encourage businesses to grow by giving them certainty, not making it more costly to do business and impossible for them to plan for the future--
“Ask any small business owner in Colorado, and they’ll tell you that skyrocketing health care prices that will change month-to-month and year-to-year make it more difficult for them to create jobs. If Sen. Udall really cares about the people of Colorado, he must support the complete repeal of Obamacare.”
