Assemblyman Donnelly Derides the "Un"affordable Care Act


Assemblyman Donnelly voted no on AB 2x (Pan), which locks into state law the Obamacare requirements that individual health insurance policies and plan contracts be sold based on guaranteed issue and renewal, community rating, and not contain pre-existing condition exclusions. This will result in California enforcing a deeply flawed and inflationary rating scheme that is likely to lead to double-digit premium hikes (“rate shock”) for people who are not able to buy their insurance through their employer. The bill passed 53-25.
