Open enrollment for Obamacare is kicking off, and consumers shopping for plans are finding higher premiums and fewer choices than ever before. With the election less than a week away, it’s important to remember that Evan Bayh was an early — and proud — supporter of this disastrous law.
In 2008, Bayh promised that Obamacare would “provide health care cost reductions of about $2,500 for the typical family.” But in Indiana, Obamacare customers are currently paying an average deductible of nearly $4,500—8.6 percent higher compared to last year—and premiums will be increasing as much as 29 percent in 2017.
This election gives Hoosiers the chance to hold Bayh accountable — something he tried to avoid in 2010 after voting for this failed law. As the open enrollment season and campaign cycle collide, Freedom Partners Action Fund is making sure Bayh can’t rewrite history on his support for Obamacare.
