RALEIGH – The Civitas Institute’s website is showcasing North Carolinians’ stories about how Obamacare (the Affordable Care Act) is frustrating people across the state. Reading these stories puts a human face on this hot topic. Among the stories:
- “I have two kids with chronic, life-threatening illnesses. We are being destroyed by Obamacare.” (With video.)
- A man, wife, and their son who are facing premium increases of $8,227 a year – plus the risk of out-of-pocket expenses that could add another $8,350 to the family’s annual health costs.
- An entrepreneur whose plan to start a new business is in limbo because the Obamacare rollout has sown confusion among insurers and throughout the health care industry.
- A retiree whose former employer dropped his supplementary health insurance plan. The available Obamacare policy would raise his costs $7,400 a year.
Many more stories about real people wrestling with Obamacare are available at www.nccivitas.org/2013/your-obamacare-stories/.
Journalists are invited to read these stories to find out more about how the law is really impacting real people across North Carolina.
Moreover, the Civitas Institute can put you in touch with some of these families and individuals who are willing to share their stories with the media. Our experts can also address key aspects of this issue.
