If recent history of the medical insurance industry is any indicator, they apparently are making their annual increase. Business is business. Why should any business not attempt to maximize profits? Soon as the Health Care Reform act triggers the mandatory caps, most of these companies will be prohibted from raising the rates without justification. Today, the justification is Obamacare, last year and the ten years before that they claimed the increase in rates was linked to the increase in medical costs. This entire exercise was mostly artificially fabricated by the health care industry itself (except for the fact that their CEOs and Washington lobbyists were insisting on higher and higher payments and bonus increases which resulted in corresponding reduction of dividend payments). Think about it, all those mailings you receive every open season to change your coverage is expensive. Advertising costs money, alot of money. They are also experiencing a loss in revenue due to the unemployment reality. The 99% will soon shut these blood suckers down and then we will have universal healthcare just like every other modern nation does. This country doesn't need the health insurance industry. Medicare is one of the most efficently managed systems in our country. Processing claims are so much cheaper then any private company can do it. If you listen to ajm and the libertarians our government should be reduced to a bunch of city states making rules for themselves and our great nation would become the weakest and most fragmented country in the world. Everybody for themselves is the mantra. Let the elderly, sick, maimed and unsupported children fend for themselves. The whole con job is just another way for business to seperate the customer from his cash. Governor Scott, where are the jobs you promised us?
