Who is getting stung? College students: “Before Obamacare, young healthy college students paid average health insurance premiums that only cost $100-600 per year,” writes Dr. Vliet. “Obamacare mandates mean that premiums are rising to $1,700 to $2,000 per year. In New Jersey, where health insurance is mandatory for college students, this is indeed a huge sting!” College faculty: “At many universities, faculty hours are being cut back to less than 29 hours a week to avoid the costly Obamacare premiums,” writes Dr. Vliet. Others getting the sting: “Union members: the sting of Obamacare has come in many forms, so Big Labor is now seeking waivers for union members. Employers: Paying for all the Obamacare mandates in employer-provided health insurance adds $1.79 to the hourly rate to hire an employee. That’s why many are not hiring. Seniors: After the election, seniors are learning that all the promises of “no cutbacks” in their medical care were false."
