It Only Goes Up, Up, Up #Obamacare
Montana Obamacare Premium Increases:
Montana Health CO-OP: 30-40%
Blue Cross Blue Shield: 18-25%
When President Obama promised Obamacare would reduce premiums by $2,500 it was more than just a broken promise, premiums have actually increased by nearly $2,500 for Montanans because of Obamacare.
Working-class Montanans actually pay an extra $189 every month for their health care plans because of Obamacare– taking $2,300 from our paycheck every year.
And, more money will now be taken from our paycheck with this recent 20-45% premium increase.
You can’t count on Montana Democrats to fight back against Obamacare or protect us from this financial hardship because they don’t stand with the 56% of Montanans who oppose Obamacare.
Democrat State Auditor Monica Lindeen– who currently regulates the insurance marketplace– said, “She was pleasantly surprised to see rumors of dramatic price increases under the Affordable Care Act are not happening in Montana.” Not true.
Democrat Jesse Laslovich– who’s running to replace Lindeen as State Auditor– supports Obamacare and said, “People will have lower premiums.” Again, not true.
Senator Tester continues to support Obamacare, well, because he’s always willing to do Obama’s bidding.
As for Governor Bullock, when given the opportunity to protect working-class Montana families from Obamacare refused to join a lawsuit challenging Obamacare.
Bullock’s loyalty to President Obama and the Democrat Party has been rewarded. The Democratic Governors Association (DGA)– which Bullock now runs and raises millions in dark money– wired nearly $3 million to a group who ran political ads supporting Bullock’s 2012 run for governor.
One of the political ads touted Bullock’s efforts defending and protecting Obamacare.
Will more money be funneled into Montana from the DGA because Bullock supports Obamacare? Time will tell …
Most disturbing of all, Bullock has amassed a $3 million dark money war-chest (and counting) for his work at the DGA, and it’s only a matter of time before Bullock’s dark money floods the state to support his re-election campaign.
