Louisianians health insurance rates skyrocket because of Landrieu's ObamaCare vote

Mary Landrieu’s track record of voting with President Obama 97 percent of the time – including casting the deciding vote for ObamaCare -- is already causing her headaches. According to a recent Rasmussen poll, 62 percent of Louisiana voters are opposed to ObamaCare.

When voting for the law, Senator Landrieu said it would lower costs, but now we can see that is certainly not the case. New insurance company filings with the state Department of Insurance show that nearly 60,000 Louisianans could face health insurance premium increases of up to 24 percent when their policies renew for 2015.

Landrieu has doubled down on ObamaCare, saying it is a “solid law” and that she isrunning for re-election as a supporter of ObamaCare. But in the coming months, her support for ObamaCare is going to become very costly for many Louisiana residents.

“Senator Landrieu has gone out of her way to rubber stamp President Obama’s liberal agenda, and now Louisianans will be forced to foot the bill for her vote for ObamaCare,” Republican Party of Louisiana Executive Director Jason Dore said. “Mary Landrieu delivers broken promises, but not the results Louisianans deserve.”

These rate increases are the latest example of Landrieu’s promises coming up short, after her broken promise that if people liked their health plans, they could keep them.
