Yes my self employed Insurance would go up 3-6% a year along with inflation and my age.

The last 2 years I've seen an 80% increase. That is due to Obamacare.

But he never had insurance, even before Obamacare. Plus, you can buy Marketplace polices with $2,500.00 deductibles.

Same good Policy I've had for the last 10 or more years. They were forced to add all the coverage and additional fees.

If I ever get pregnant I'll be covered and make history.

Ours went up at the same rate. It's really sad that so many people don't understand this.

If you get pregnant, I'm coming to the baby shower.

I tried to donate to his GoFundMe, but it wouldn't let me make payments in boot straps.

Another top comment at: Need help to save my eye sight by Luis Lang - GoFundMe

"Every one of your donors identifies as liberal. Your conservative right-wing friends gave $800,000 to an homophobic pizza place, but not one dime for you. Think about that."

That's pretty low. Most right-wingers claim it went up 4000000%. They can teach you a thing or two about exaggerated claims.

I feel almost sorry enough for this guy to give him a few bucks, but not quite there yet.

He's the poster child for every conversation that I have ever had with my GOP friends and one family member, when we discuss the ACA. Who takes care of those who are too stupid to take care of themselves?? Do we just let them die, or, in this case, go blind?
