Dem Rep Admits That Obamacare Doubled His Insurance Costs

At a hearing held by the House Committee on Rules on Tuesday, Rep. Gene Green (D-TX) admitted, perhaps unwittingly, to the committee that his healthcare cost have doubled due to Obamacare.

In an exchange with Congressman Pete Sessions (R-TX) who said, “I’m on ObamaCare and my plan is twice as expensive, and the deductible is twice as much,” the Texas Democrat responded by saying “That’s my experience also.”

Rep. Green admitted that he has seen his insurance and deductible rates double, after he signed up for health insurance under the Affordable Care Act.

Breitbart News reports that in 2013, Rep. Green criticized Republicans for attempting to repeal ObamaCare, claiming the Affordable Care Act  “will help not only the millions of uninsured but also everyone with health insurance because the ACA improves coverage.”
