Arizonans Will Pay More for Less Because of Ann Kirkpatrick’s Proudest Vote

PHOENIX – Arizona Republican Party Chairman Robert Graham today criticized Representative Ann Kirkpatrick’s continued support of Obamacare.

Private insurance plans will cost more next year as well.  On the low end, Cigna will increase rates by 33% next year.  Phoenix Health Plans had the highest increase with a 160% jump in rates.

“Because of Ann Kirkpatrick’s proudest vote, Arizonans will be paying more money for less healthcare options next year,” said Arizona Republican Party Chairman Robert Graham.
