Judy Abdo and Juan Matute of Santa Monica Forward thank the U.S. Supreme Court for “preserving affordable health care for millions of Americans” by upholding Obamacare. This has not been my experience.

When Obamacare went into effect, Blue Cross informed me that they were terminating my plan. They offered me a new plan with similar coverage, but over three times as expensive. I switched to Assurant, which offered similar coverage that was only two and a half times as expensive.

Last month Assurant informed me that they will terminate my plan at the end of 2015. They are leaving the health insurance business due to the costs of Obamacare.

For millions of Americans, Obamacare has made heath care more expensive, not less.
