So far this October we have heard secret Trump recordings and seen undercover videos of Hillary’s corrupt campaign, but ObamaCare is the real October surprise.
The White House came out on Monday and admitted that premiums were going to go way up next year. In fact, they are going to up around 25%.
The news is not good for Democrats and the Affordable Care Act which Obama pushed through his first term. He still considers it his best domestic legacy, but it is falling apart.
ACA was sold to America as a way to keep your doctor, keep your plan and bring the prices of healthcare down while giving more people insurance.
More people have insurance, but they are paying a lot of money for it.
In some states, Alaska, Alabama, Oklahoma, South Carolina and Wyoming, members of ObamaCare will only have a single insurer providing plans.
There will be no competition because all the big insurance companies ran out as soon as they started losing money.
After the White House made the announcement that the premiums would be skyrocketing next year, Trump went on the offensive and attacked ObamaCare.
“It’s a disaster. In some areas they’re paying 60,70 and 80 per cent more than they were paying last year. It’s over for ObamaCare.”
Hillary continues to defend the Affordable Care Act, and that could really hurt her come Election Day.
If people who were planning on voting for Hillary see that their plan is going up another 25% after their plans have already gone up, they might switch to Trump.
Trump wants to repeal and replace ObamaCare and now that the ACA premiums are going up even higher, he might find more support for that decision.
The timing couldn’t be worse for Hillary Clinton as she is being buried in scandals from WikiLeaks, Project Veritas and plagued by low enthusiasm. Will the ObamaCare premium spike be the October surprise that finally breaks the camels back? We’ll find out in two weeks.
