Black College Forced To Cancel Health Plans For Students Because of Huge Obamacare Price Increases

Young black Americans voted overwhelmingly for Obama. This is how he’s repaying them for their loyalty.

Officials at one one of the nation’s oldest and most elite historically black colleges are citing the Affordable Care Act (ACA) as the reason they have cancelled a school-wide affordable health care plan they had offered students.

The official website for Bowie State, a Maryland public school less than an hour’s drive from Washington D.C., explains that Obamacare’s new regulations would force the cost of the insurance to rise from $50 to $900 a semester.

“Bowie State University has suspended offering health insurance for domestic students for the 2013-2014 academic year,” states the school’s official website. “Due to new requirements of the Affordable Care Act which will go into effect on January 1, 2014, the cost of insurance for domestic students will increase to approximately $1800 per year.”

That works out to approximately $900 per semester. The student health insurance plan had cost students $50 per semester for the 2012-13 school year, according to a cached page of the university’s description of the plan. The original link to the description has been deleted.

It’s tempting to taunt in a situation like this, but this is actually just sad. There are real Americans being hurt by the lies of this President — good people, who simply made the mistake of trusting the wrong man.
