Schock: Obamacare Is ''Destroying'' Health Insurance System


Obamacare is destroying the private health insurance market… according to Congressman Aaron Schock, who says Congress has to step in quickly to prevent irreparable harm to millions of Americans. 

 

Schock was joined at a Springfield news conference by several businesspeople who say their premiums or out-of-pocket costs are skyrocketing because of changes to their policies forced by the Affordable Care Act. 

 

A Springfield business owner says his cost for providing health insurance for his employees will go up by 150% because of President Obama’s health care reform law.  Tony Kulavic of Kulavic’s Auto Body says his annual cost for his 10 employees will jump from $19,000 to more than $45,000, and he doesn’t know if he will try to absorb the cost, pass it on to his workers… or drop their health plans altogether.  Kulavic says he doesn’t know if he could find a cheaper plan because of problems logging onto the healthcare.gov website.

 

Schock… who says his office has received “thousands” of complaints about Obamacare and not a single call in support… is supporting legislation that would allow people to keep their existing policies, something President Obama promised but has been unable to deliver.
