Cassidy Statement on Obamacare Rate Increases

WASHINGTON— U.S. Senator Bill Cassidy, M.D. (R-LA) released the following statement after the proposed Obamacare rate increases were announced to be an average of 24 percent for Louisiana families, and the Obama administration approved increases of 60.5 percent, 48.8 percent, and 20 percent on select plans:   

“Some Louisiana families might face a 60.5 percent increase in their health care premiums—that’s unacceptable. Our workers, small businesses and families are being crushed by Obamacare’s mandates and high costs. If given the opportunity to start replacing Obamacare with patient-centered solutions, Republicans need to be ready—King v. Burwell might be that opportunity. Affordable, accessible health care that gives patients the power must be a reality.”
