SAN FRANCISCO - One reason the Republicans are so adamantly against Obamacare, is that it's driving individual insurance premiums up. And with the law now kicking in, the bills are coming due.
In looking into this, we talked to health insurance companies, and representatives of Covered California, agency implementing the Affordable Care Act in California. What they told us may be a bitter pill to swallow, for those who will pay more.
Cynthia Jaynes thought her family would benefit from the Affordable Care Act.
The author of several young adult books says her family will see a minimum 11 percent increase in her premiums with Blue Shield but that's not what bothers her the most.
"We would have to pay, out of pocket, for all of our prescriptions until we reached that $9,000 family deductible," said Jaynes.

So sorry. Thanks for playing.
Not since Obama re-wrote the law from the WH and waived that cap for another year.
According to the CT website, my $6,350 deductible and almost $300/month premium is much more affordable. /s
You’ve served the public well all these years.
Enjoy your retirement
Just ... some ...
Anyone who found an increase in their premiums “unexpected”, I recommend that they join Free Republic.
Eat your peas.
Don’t forget to send a generous check to the DNC...BEFORE you go broke.
Some?! Show me any that are going down, or, even, staying the same. The Shut Up and Die Act require so many covered items, that, it is not possible to make the pool small enough that it is affordable.
They won’t get it, but this is the inevitable point in every useful idiot’s life when it is revealed they were just a means to give someone else power. It is a little late for refunds.
Aww but think of all the poor people she's helping out.
She's just sad because she's getting soaked when she thought it was only the RICH !

Obamacare was sold to help the 30 million uninsured.
The 300 million with insurance are now getting the bill and the rocks in their head are exploding.
Sky is blue.
God is love.
Mathematics has neither malice nor mercy.
If this wasn't the most predictable observation ever, read the last paragraph, in which the alleged journalist notes that most people won't see any increases because their premiums are paid by their employers.
No dumbasses, they aren't.
Increased premiums are paid by you in the form of reduced salaries, reductions in other benefits, and demands for increased productivity. At some point the employer next has to either reduce headcount, or reduce hours of certain employees under 30 hrs/wk, and send them off on their own.
I'll make a more certain prediction: every moron in this article will be crying and screaming inside of six months that the real problem with 0-care is that it doesn't go far enough.
I’ve said this before: Hard to believe, but many Democrats are getting re-signed at work, dealing with next years budget for health care for employees, and so on...they are NOT going to be happy, either.
This thing will blow up on its own, without any help from Republicans.
” most people won’t see any increases because their premiums are paid by their employers.”
This outrageous lie won’t fly even in San Fransisco.
“some” == “almost all”
