Former MSNBC host Dylan Ratigan took to Twitter to complain that his current health care plan is being cancelled and replaced with a new policy that will cost over 350% more thanks to Obamacare.

“I bought a catastrophic health policy for $170/mo when I left MSNBC,” Ratigan tweeted. “Obamacare cancelled the policy. New rate $600/mo. Thnx Mr. President!”

Obamacare supporters responded to Ratigan’s tweet by arguing that “he should welcome the elimination of his previous plan,” reports Mediaite. [2]

Ratigan should consider himself lucky that his costs are only increasing by 350%. As Mike Adams reported last month [3], a couple in Texas revealed that the cost of their Humana policy was increasing by a whopping 539%, from $212.10 per month to $1,356.60 per month.

We also reported on a Texas man [4] who told us that he would be forced to pay a 290% premium hike in order to avoid being fined under Obamacare.

A study by the Manhattan Institute [5] found that Obamacare would increase health premiums by an average 99% for men and 62% for women, although many are being hit with hikes which amount to multiple times those figures.

The Obama administration is also reportedly threatening insurance companies [6], who are being bombarded with complaints from customers about soaring policy costs, to keep quiet about Obamacare.

During an appearance on NBC [7] last night, Barack Obama was forced to apologize for claiming on multiple occasions that Americans could keep their health plans, when in reality tens of millions of Americans are having their policies cancelled [8] as a result of insurance companies being forced to comply with Obamacare regulatory mandates.

Meanwhile, Infowars continues to receive correspondence from people across the country who are seeing their premiums skyrocket thanks to Obamacare. Here’s one we received today;

“I finally got onto the affordable care website. What happened next is appalling, I am 63 retired, only make $806/month retirement. I am in good health, I hike, camp, backpack, canoe. The only question that was health related was do I smoke (no). The Lowest Ins. Rate it brought back to me was $558/month over half of what I have coming in. Leaving me just a little over $200 to pay for housing and food, clothing. So I guess they want me to have Ins. So that I am covered when I get sick from the elements, because I am homeless, sick from malnutrition, because I can’t afford to eat so I can pay for Ins. Required by an illegal act. I have one question – is there any intelligent life in Washington at all?”

During an emotional appearance on Fox News last night, a man suffering from cancer who had his previous health plan cancelled as a result of the Affordable Care Act said that he could not afford his medical bills under Obamacare and for the financial future of his family said that he had chosen to “let nature take its course.”
