Dylan Ratigan ‘Thanx Mr President’ after tweeting Obamacare price hikes

Former MSNBC host Dylan Ratigan fell victim to Obamacare and tweeted his displeasure this week.

Dylan Ratigan screenshotRatigan’s health insurance plan had been canceled due to the Affordable Care Act and he doesn’t seem pleased with his new rate.

“I bought a catastrophic health policy for $170/mo when I left MSNBC,” Ratigan tweeted Thursday. “Obamacare canceled the policy. New rate $600/mo. Thnx Mr. President!”

His follow up tweet: “@efreilly: @DylanRatigan @RockDots So, the exchange worked then?” yep. Only double the old price!”

More interesting is the responses on twitter – not much support for Ratigan due to his “wealth” as they echo the talking points of the Obama administration.

@DylanRatigan Pay your fair share dude.. #YourRules – S.M ‏@redsteeze

@DylanRatigan Cancellations for the greater good! @redsteeze – Mikéy Ramoné ‏@ThePantau

@DylanRatigan The idea is to force young people to pay more but to make it not look like a scam, give them a “better” policy they won’t use – Zac Bissonnette ‏@ZacBissonnette

@DylanRatigan Must have been a junk plan. Obama said he’s sorry if it makes you feel better. – AG ‏@AG_Conservative

@DylanRatigan Did “Obamacare” call up and say, “its canceled fucker, eat it” or was it the insurance company? – Deon Grein ‏@Deongrein
