U.S. Senator Ben Sasse issued the following statement regarding the news that Blue Cross Blue Shield, the state’s largest insurer, will be forced to exit Nebraska’s Obamacare exchange, driving approximately 20,000 Nebraskans off their current plans.

"Obamacare is bleeding Nebraskans. Enough is enough. This isn’t a political statement but an undeniable fact: Obamacare is failing. Nebraska families have suffered the Co-Oportunity failure, the unfortunate exits of UnitedHealth and now Blue Cross Blue Shield, and even those whose plans haven’t failed have seen rotten premium increases. This law isn’t working for Nebraska families."
