Shane Jansen, a Nebraska man without any children received a letter from Blue Cross Blue Shield that his insurance will increase from $139.50 to $229.19 per month.
Jansen’s current policy isn’t up to par with Obamacare, which explains the monthly increase.
"I just wanted to show, concrete proof what's going to happen to people," said Shane Jansen, who posted the letter on his Facebook page.
"I purposely chose a plan that would be inexpensive," said Jansen, "because I have the mindset that unless I break my leg, or something terrible happens, I'm not going to go the doctor anyway."
Jansen’s new plan includes mental illness, substance abuse, maternity care, and pediatric dental and vision care. Seemingly, it doesn’t matter that he doesn’t have children. He is still required to pay anyway. One could believe he is subsidizing other people’s children.
"I'm not married, I don't have any kids," said Jansen, "and they're making me pay for all of these things that don't apply to me."
