In yet another example of the egregious failure of ObamaCare, major insurer Humana announced on Tuesday that it will drop out of the individual health insurance market for 2018.
The company has already scaled back its presence as the market becomes increasingly unstable, according to the New York Times. In 2017, Humana sold individual policies in only 11 states.
“Based on its initial analysis of data associated with the company’s healthcare exchange membership following the 2017 open enrollment period, Humana is seeing further signs of an unbalanced risk pool,” the company said in a statement.
Humana has estimated that it will lose nearly $45 million on Affordable Care Act exchange plans, according CNBC.
ObamaCare has destabilized the market for insurance and failed the American people. Republicans are working to replace this defunct legislation with something that works for all of our citizens.
When RNC Chairman Reince Priebus laid out his vision for Republican leadership, he outlined the Principles for American Renewal.
These are the core principles that unite and drive the Republican Party. These are the core principles that inform and inspire our policymaking. And these are the core principles that we need to get our country back on track.
Take the American Renewal Survey:

President Obama showed a flash of anger Monday with Republican critics of his anti-terrorism strategy, saying he is “too busy” to engage in a rhetorical debate with them.
“What I’m not interested in doing is posing or pursuing some notion of American leadership, or American winning or whatever other slogans they come up with, that has no relationship to what actually is going to work to protect the American people” and America’s allies, Mr. Obama said at a news conference in Turkey. “I’m too busy for that.”
The president was addressing a question about critics of his strategy for defeating the Islamic State, in the wake of the terrorist attacks in Paris last week.
“I can’t afford to play some of the political games that others may,” Mr. Obama said. “We’ll do what’s required to keep the American people safe. It’s entirely appropriate for us in a democracy to have a debate about these issues. If they think that somehow their advisers are better than the chairman of my Joint Chiefs of Staff, and the folks who are actually on the ground, I want to meet them.”
