Hassan Unfazed By ObamaCare Premium Hike In NH?

Granite Staters are waking up to the prospect of spiking health care premiums thanks to ObamaCare, according to the New Hampshire Union-Leader:

Minuteman Health Inc. — which entered the New Hampshire exchange market this year with the lowest premiums — has requested rate increases ranging from 42 to 51 percent for next year, according to healthcare.gov, the online exchange established by the Affordable Care Act.

Maine Community Health Options asked for premium increases between 19 and 22 percent.

So where are the folks who championed ObamaCare as a boon for the Granite State?

Gov. Maggie Hassan called ObamaCare “essential to the future of our country,” and in 2012 said all of her concerns about ObamaCare “were addressed in the final version of the bill.”

Apparently a 50 percent increase in health care premiums for New Hampshire residents is not a concern for Hassan.
