The Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, is rocking the health insurance plans and premiums of Americans nationwide.

WSFA 12 News says Alabama Blue Cross Blue Shield is sending out cancellation letters to its customers and has announced it will have to cancel "the vast majority of its individual plans because they don't comply with the Affordable Care Act: for self-employed or small business insurance customers. "They are incredibly more expensive—double, sometimes triple, what customers are paying now, and the benefits don't seem to measure up," reported the Alabama news affiliate.

In New Mexico, Presbyterian Health plan customers will see an average 20% increase on its plans because of Obamacare. "Unfortunately, it sounds like almost everyone's wallet will take a hit," reports KOAT-NM.

My son and his wife work at the same place. The company is searching for a company to be compliant. If not, they are in a world of hurt, with three kids in college, and three kids at home. They finally made it to middle class, only to  get shot back down!
