Notice the “before” amount of the premium is $212.10. The “after” amount is $1,356.60. Here’s hoping that the person who received this letter is one of those special individuals with “additional income” that they “don’t need,” which Obama has spoken about. Otherwise, this poor slob is going to need to sell one of his kids to make ends meet.
