As the old adage goes, If you dont change your direction, youre likely to end up where youre headed. When it comes to health care in America, Democrats refusal to change course on ObamaCare even as it crumbles across the country will lead us to more skyrocketing costs and decreased quality of care.

 

This week, the Obama administration confirmed that monthly premiums for benchmark plans are set to rise by an average of 25 percent in the 39 states participating in ObamaCares federal marketplace. About one-in-five consumers will have just one provider to choose from.

 

As bad as these numbers are, they dont paint the full picture of the burdens many across the country will face come open enrollment next week.

 

In my home state of Arizona, a 27-year-old shopping for benchmark plans will see their premiums rise by an average 116 percent. For Arizonans selecting other plans, the situation is just as bad, with premiums set to increase by 51 to 74.5 percent.

In Maricopa County Arizonas most populous county, which includes the city of Phoenix the 126,000 citizens who have enrolled in ObamaCare will only have one health provider option. According to state regulators, that would mean more than $1,400 per month for a family of four and nearly $500 per month for a middle age man for a benchmark silver plan. Those who cant afford these expensive plans will be forced to pay a penalty.

 

This is a far cry from the promise of more choice, more competition, [and] real health care security, that President Obama once declared.
