    Has the uncertainty over the fate of ObamaCare accelerated the instability of insurer markets — or is that fully attributable to ObamaCare itself? Insurance consumers in Idaho might not care whether the chicken or the egg came first. They’re going to be more concerned that premiums will cost them an arm and a leg, thanks to massive rate hikes as high as 81% for next year’s plans:

    The five insurers serving the individual market in Idaho are Blue Cross of Idaho Health Service, Mountain Health Co-Op, PacificSource Health Plans, Regence BlueShield of Idaho, and SelectHealth.

    For all plans, insurers requested rates ranging from a low of 25 percent to a high of 51 percent for a combined average statewide rate increase of 38 percent. For Obamacare’s popular Silver plan, the average rate increase among all insurers was even higher at 50 percent, with one insurer requesting a high of 81 percent.

    “I am deeply disappointed and frustrated to share these rates,” said Dean Cameron, who directs the department. “I understand how difficult it will be for Idahoans to afford reasonable coverage, especially those without a subsidy.”

    Someone should introduce a bill to seize obama's retirement check and put it toward their healthcare, he lied about it so he should pay for the crime.
