SMALL BUSINESS NOT EXACTLY SHOCKED BY PROPOSED PREMIUM INCREASES

HARTFORD (June 6,
2016): In response to today’s announcement that the healthcare companies making
up Connecticut’s Obamacare exchange are seeking astronomical increases to their
insurance rates, the following statement may be attributed to National
Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) Connecticut state director, Andrew
Markowski:

When the
Affordable Health Care Act was passed, the small business community was
repeatedly assured that insurance premiums would not skyrocket. Just like so
many other aspects of Obamacare, stabilizing premium rates has failed to come
to fruition and our members will be the ones left having to compensate for the
increased cost of healthcare for their employees.

We certainly
encourage all of our members to participate in the public hearings being held
this summer, now is the time for lawmakers to hear directly from their
constituents about the harsh side effects of Obamacare. Small business owners
and their employees have been bearing the brunt of healthcare increases since
Obamacare was enacted and will, unfortunately, continue to do so if changes are
not made.
