Skip to comments.Study: Insurance costs to soar under Obamacare
Posted on 09/29/2013 1:39:38 AM PDT by Innovative
New research from the Manhattan Institute estimates that insurance rates for young men will rise by 99 percent. Rates for younger women will rise between 55 percent to 62 percent, according to the right-leaning New York think tank.
The precise impact of the new health law is likely to vary markedly from state-to-state, however.
These differences mean men will get hammered in North Carolina with an average 305 percent rate hike, while women will suffer in Nebraska, paying an average of 237 percent more. For most people, subsidies in the law will not counteract the rate shock, says co-author of the study Avik Roy, a health care expert and senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute.

Nice weekend news dump by See BS.
Remember its not insurance its a TAX!
It was passed by the demons to destroy America!
Every day I thank God that I got out of the USSA before I had ever heard of Barky Obumbo.
I send my sincere condolences for those living in the Obamanation.
This can’t be true, Obama told us that rates were going to fall!
Just had family members, including a male, move from Long Island, NY, to North Carolina - !
Mehhhh... USA is still the best place to live hands down. Not by as wide a margin as in the 50s thru the 80s... but still.
Our people will move to reshape the government as we always do.
aaaaaaaand remember the 25 traitors that sided with the entire Democrat party in the senate to ram 0bamacare down our throats while getting exemptions for themselves, their families and their worthless scumbag staffers!!!!!!!!!!
The cost increases only if you have insurance now and you pay to have insurance tomorrow. If you don’t insure, the cost is zero - except for the Obama/Roberts Tax.
I’m envious. The day fast approaches when leaving the United States will not be allowed. It’s going to be the Red-White-and-Blue Curtain.
In any “transfer of wealth” schemes, somebody has to pay.
I always wanted a free pony but long ago I learned that I am the provider of free ponies for others, not the recipient.
post election on 0’care seniors to take brunt.
Suggest every one rent or buy Damaged Care about the HMO’s cause that is what 0’care is going to be. Chronically ill were purposely killed off. Sarah Palin’s death panels happened much earlier than even she knew about.
Amazon and Netflix have the movie.
Didn’t need a “study” to figure that out, it was a given.
Chief Dufus Roberts is the most guilty party in this fiasco. Though it was never passed as a tax, he “deemed” it a tax, though Pelosi “deemed” it not a tax. All Supreme Court justices should be required to keep their decrepit bones breathing with mandatory ObamaCare coverage.
They forgot the by-line. But only for the producers who now pay for everyone!
