Leaders making no effort to stop rising premiums

In Hawaii, health insurance premiums are going to go up by 40 to 100 percent under Obamacare, and our representatives are doing nothing to try to stop it.

Hawaii companies already pay significantly for employee health insurance and now that cost will become a huge burden for employers and Hawaii employees.

It seems our representatives – Sens. Brian Schatz and Mazie Hirono and Reps. Tulsi Gabbard and Colleen Hanabusa – know nothing of the increase in premiums. They are saying nothing but supporting the president.

Here we have a massive and growing federal budget deficit, a debt ceiling that always needs to be lifted and grow more debt, a health care act which will massively increase the federal deficit and further burden businesses while our representatives are rubber-stamping it.

Are we headed for disaster with these leaders not doing their jobs? You don’t have to be in any particular party to figure this out.
