Obamacare will hurt many to aid few

I got a letter from my insurance company stating that my health insurance will go up 36.2 percent. When I called the company, I was told that it was due to Obamacare because it was going to raise the costs of health care a lot. I hope that I am the only one with this kind of increase but I doubt it. I think this will be very common in California and many other states.

I voiced my concern with my representative, Kristin Olsen. No reply. I called the Teamsters Union, which I was a part of for 30 years, and received no reply. I am retired and on a fixed income so this monthly increase is huge! Thank you Mr. President and Gov. Brown for your support of Obamacare. A few people will benefit and the rest of us will be ripped off. Once again the good of the few outweigh the good of the many, especially in California. Because of the magnitude of this act, the American people should have been able to vote on it. Good luck come January when this goes into effect.
