Starnes: Meet the Guy whose health insurance premium more than doubled

 
You probably know somebody like Jay Wells in your town.
 
He’s a hardworking family man. He goes to church on Sunday. He owns a small business. He’s an all-around good guy.
 
 
And he’s also become a national symbol for the complete and utter failure of President Obama’s Affordable Care Act.
 
Mr. Wells, of Colquitt, Georgia, is facing a massive (and I do mean massive) increase in his monthly health insurance premiums, according to a letter he received from BlueCross BlueShield of Georgia.
 
“Your current monthly premium is $711.83,” read the letter. “Starting in January, your monthly premium will be $1,872.17.”
