This fall, Minnesotans will need to prepare to hunker down.  Not just because of the legendary winter weather the state sees, but because the state's expected increase in ObamaCare premiums is a giant snow job:

Minnesota health insurers are seeking big premium increases next year for people who buy coverage on their own, with proposed jumps for thousands of people averaging anywhere from 36 percent to 67 percent.

About 270,000 people buy coverage through Minnesota’s individual market, where shoppers buy through insurers, brokers or the state’s MNsure health insurance exchange.

It's probably cold comfort to people in Minnesota to know that they're not alone.  Most states are looking at big increases in premiums for people buying insurance under the laughably named "Affordable Care Act."

At, we've been collecting stories of the true human cost of ObamaCare.  If ObamaCare has caused your insurance premiums to spike, or caused your policy to be cancelled, we want to hear from you.  Share your story by emailing us at [email protected]. Pictures and/or video testimonials are encouraged.
