Cancelled policies, soaring premiums, and website glitches are just a few of the many problems Obamacare has saddled on North Carolinians.
Tony Hyatt, owner of a landscaping business in North Carolina, says he is suffering from "sticker shock." Hyatt and his wife’s premium has tripled from $311 a month to $963 a month.

The letter Hyatt received from his insurance company notifying him of his new policy rate also said his deductible will be increasing by $1000. Hyatt told WSOC that he was "super surprised" upon notification. He expected that his premium would increase, but not to such a high rate.
Hyatt is worried, saying "I really am concerned that the way things are going, that the quality of healthcare will go down."
Rep. Richard Hudson (R-8th District) echoed Hyatt’s concerns: "This is a 1950s style, one size fits all, the government tells you what you can have system and it doesn’t work. We need a personalized, individual system."
