CCEA union boss: Obamacare is driving up our health insurance costs

Victor Joecks

Will SEIU come after CCEA for telling the truth about Obamacare?

Who says Obamacare is driving up the cost of insurance? It’s not just the Heritage Foundation, Forbes and the American Enterprise Institute.

As the Las Vegas Sun reports, the union boss who runs the Clark County Education Association’s Teachers Health Trust also blames Obamacare for increasing costs.

However, with an increase in health care costs, driven in part by the passage of the Affordable Care Act, the Teachers Health Trust no longer can dip into its reserve funds to subsidize rising costs, trust CEO Peter Alpert said. (Emphasis added)

Remember this the next time someone tries to claim the Affordable Care Act made health insurance more affordable.

Even union bosses are now admitting that the “Affordable” Care Act is making insurance more expensive.
