    They wouldn’t skyrocket at all if we got government the hell out of the healthcare sector (where they gave absolutely no constitutional authority to be).

    In fact, they would drastically decrease. Just look at the laser eye surgery industry. Government hasn’t gotten involved, and prices have plummeted while quality and results have improved, all due to private market competition.

    $1650/mo ? Well how much net earnings do you and your family make a year then?

    I have friends who are on it who pay next to nothing for it and they love it. One guy works as $10/hr laborer another guy I know does paper route delivery. They both don't pay all that much they told me and get subsidies I think. I think it depends if you live in blue state and how much you make. They live in blue states.

    I see we have another one. It seems after 5 years someone would have taken the time to see the most heavily subsidized states are red.

    Trump Slammed the Brakes on Skyrocketing Obamacare Premiums
    Aug 20, 2018 Trump Slammed the Brakes on Skyrocketing Obamacare Premiums Obamacare premiums in 2014 increased 25%. In 2015 Obamacare premiums, if you went to the Obamacare website like the law used to mandate that you do, if you went there in 2015, the increase was 14% from the year before. In 2016, election year, the rate increase was 8%. In 2017, Obamacare rate increases were 23%.
    The increase, if you go buy health insurance now, if you’ve been buying it now or for the rest of the year, the 2019 health insurance rate increase will be 1% or less. It’s what’s called bending the cost curve down. It’s what happens when adults are put in charge of things. This is what happens when a central key element of Obamacare was repealed. Making you buy it, there’s no reason to cut costs if you have to buy it. Why would anybody cut costs? With the mandate gone, there’s competition. It’s stunning. Health insurance increase. They’re sky-high, don’t misunderstand. But the rate increase next year is only gonna be 1% because of action the Trump administration has taken on Obama.
