A New Mexcio man recently saw his health insurance premium triple due to Obamacare:

"Health insurance premiums are skyrocketing for some New Mexicans," says a local anchor. "The insurance companies say it's because of the Affordable (health) Care Act."

The reporter adds, "Talk about sticker shock." And points to a man, George Pitts, who used to pay $139.63 for health insurance. "Now his cheapest option: triple the price at $431."

Pitts says he was "shocked" and that he's "never had a bill of any kind double" like this.

His insurance plan blames Obamacare for the rate increase.
