As Trump ties up the Republican nomination we all look to the general election come November.
We can certainly expect a heated battle between Donald Trump and the Democratic nominee, most likely Hillary Clinton.
Both sides will use everything in their arsenal to discredit the other.
But, among Trump’s many advantages, there’s one the left didn’t see coming.
Ever since the disaster that is Obamacare hit our country, insurance companies have been losing millions.
The terrible piece of legislation has hamstrung these companies, making it impossible for them to maintain their business and turn a profit.
That means only two things: either they go out of business or raise their rates.
Guess what they’ll choose?
The last thing Democrats want to contend with just a week before the 2016 presidential election is an outcry over double-digit insurance hikes as millions of Americans begin signing up for Obamacare.
But that looks increasingly likely as health plans socked by Obamacare losses look to regain their financial footing by raising rates.
Just a week after the nation’s largest insurer, UnitedHealth Group, pulled out of most Obamacare exchanges because it anticipates $650 million in losses this year, Aetna’s CEO said Thursday that his company expects to break even, but legislative fixes are needed to make the marketplace sustainable.
Just as America goes to the polls to pick the next President, they’ll be faced with massive increases in their health insurance bills.
Sounds pretty crazy, considering Obamacare was supposed to make health care more affordable. I don’t think many Americans will be interested in Democrats continuing in the White House after this blow.
Republicans will tie the pain consumers will be hit with to Hillary Clinton, who has proudly suggested Obamacare was Hillarycare originally and who has tried to position herself as Obama’s third term.
The odds are certainly stacked against Hillary Clinton this November. This Obamacare fiasco could be the nail in the coffin.
