Liberal Columnist Who Backed Obamacare Sees Her Insurance Rates Skyrocket

I actually like Kirsten Powers. She’s a sweet lady. That being said, she’s also one smart cookie who should have known this was going to happen.

Daily Beast columnist Kirsten Powers, who has been an Obamacare supporter, admitted on “The Kelly File” Thursday that her insurance premiums will nearly double from $160 per month to about $300 per month if she wants to keep the same deductible.

The reality of higher premiums and the broken promise that Americans can keep their current health care plans isn’t “quite the way they sold it,” she said.

“I’m in the individual market and I got the letter, the same letter everyone’s talking about. I live in D.C., so it’s a state exchange, and I went on and I guess I can roughly get the same insurance…but it will go up from about $160 a month and a $2,500 deductible – if I want to keep a $2,500 deductible, it will go up to about $300 a month,” Powers explained.

The administration may argue that its the “young” and “healthy” who will see their premiums go up, but that’s really not “quite the way they sold it,” she added.

Obama has lied over and over since he was elected and liberals have turned a blind eye to it. But, when it impacts them personally, suddenly they can see what the rest of us have been pointing out for the last five years. Conservatives knew this was going to happen and Kristin Powers should have known it, too. While I’m sorry Kirsten Powers is being hurt by this, it would have been great if she had spoken up when it mattered, when we were fighting to stop this law. Maybe next time she will.
