    Obamacare plan premiums may increase an average of 45 percent in Florida next year due to health care insurers rate hike requests, according to Florida's Office of Insurance Regulation.

    There are six insurers in Florida selling plans on and off the exchanges in 2018 including Blue Cross and Blue Shield, Celtic Insurance Company, Florida Health Care Plan, Health First Commercial Plans, Health Options, and Molina Healthcare of Florida.

    Molina Healthcare requested the highest rate increase of 71.2 percent. Individuals with this coverage can expect their monthly premium to increase from $402 to $688.

    Blue Cross and Blue Shield requested a 38.1 percent increase, Celtic Insurance Company requested a 46.1 percent increase, Florida Health Care Plan requested a 26.5 percent increase, Health First Commercial Plans requested a 39.3 percent increase, and Health Options requested a 36 percent increase

    Florida might not have a state income tax, but everything else is high. When you sell a home there, they stick you with a "stamp tax" that might go into the thousands. The worst part was it's not tax deductible on the fed tax. Then we get to the health care insurance. The same policy, same company, is $400 a month higher in Florida than in Missouri. The AAA of Florida charges more than the Auto Club in Mo and the car insurance is about $400 a year higher in Florida than Missouri. With taxes, there's no such thing as a free lunch. If you don't pay one type tax, the evil gov't sticks you with more inventive, sneaky taxes.

    Connecticut has what it refers to as a "conveyance tax"

    Local Conveyance Tax: 0.25% (varies from town to town)

    State Conveyance Tax: 0.75% of Sales Price up to $800,000 + 1.25% of Sales Price above
