Obamacare premiums to rise more than expected

-State insurance regulators have approved premium increases that are even higher than insurers requested, according to a study by USA Today. Experts point out that this might be an effort to keep insurers on the exchanges, but it certainly won’t do much to help attract the young, healthy Americans that the program is woefully lacking.

Speaking of rising costs

-The Social Security Administration is saying that higher-income workers will see a bump in their payroll taxes to support retirees’ benefits; that tax is expected to increase by 7.3% to $127,200 next year. This comes after the administration revealed that the cost-of-living increase for seniors in 2017 will be the smallest ever, rising just 0.3%.

-Actor Leonardo DiCaprio will cooperate with a probe into whether his movie “The Wolf of Wall Street” was funded by money that was embezzled from a Malaysian government fund. A spokesman for DiCaprio said he is seeking to determine whether he or his foundation had received any donations “related to these parties, and if so, to return those gifts or donations as soon as possible.”
