PASS IT ON => Average 2017 Obamacare Premium Increases in Battleground States


Barack Obama and Democrats lied for years about how Obamacare would save you money and not affect your health care choices.

Obama famously told Americans, “You can keep your plan if you like your plan.”

That was probably the most memorable line of his presidency – and it was a bald faced lie.

Obamacare was forced into law with 100% of the votes coming from Democratic lawmakers.

This week we learned premiums would increase an average of 22% this year.

Here are the average increase in premiums in battleground states.

Ohio: 13.12% increase
Florida: 17.40% increase
Pennsylvania: 32.5% increase
Nevada: 11.74% increase
Maine: 21.24% increase
New Hampshire: 12.44% increase
Virginia: 21.68% increase
North Carolina: 24.30% increase
Iowa: 20.46% increase
Michigan: 16.06% increase
Wisconsin: 20.39% increase
