ObamaCare premiums keep going up

Two more states have released proposed rates for the next year of Affordable Care Act coverage and, no surprise, they’re all pretty steep.

The details: Insurers in Washington state’s individual market are seeking a 19% increase, on average, the state said yesterday. Specific insurers’ hikes range from less than 1% up to nearly 30%. In New York, the average proposed increase is 24%.
