The media is talking about individual plans being canceled, but group plans are in danger as well. Companies and their employees cannot afford the group premiums. Below are a few examples taken from the actual renewal notice.
Greg — $257.13 in 2013 to $610.11 in 2014; Jeff — $257.13 to $848.61; Randall — $379.42 to $1,002.84; Jack — $379.42 to $1,137.06; and Janet — $379.42 to $1,002.84
I will be happy to provide a copy of my renewal to anyone who wants to see it.
A 91.74 percent plan increase? Thanks for your leadership, President Obama.

Humane Society fundraiser is a success
The 10th annual Furry Friends Fashion Fair was held Nov. 7 to benefit the Humane Society of Elkhart County. The Humane Society wishes to thank all of the volunteers who helped coordinate and carry out the event, including the community folks who modeled the wonderful fashions from Stephenson’s along with their furry companions. We’d also like to give a big five-paw salute to event sponsors and contributors, and a howl and meow to the attendees who shared this evening event with their friends and family.
Approximately $21,000 was generated through this effort to help carry out the important work of the Humane Society. We thank you again and appreciate the love and dedication to animals at the shelter.
