More lies from Hate Talk Radio.OBAMACARE CHAOS
Obama campaigned in 2008 on a promise that Obamacare would reduce the cost of health insurance by $2,500 for average families.
But since Obamacare passed, the cost of an average family policy has ALREADY INCREASED BY $3,000.
That reflects the philosophical problem that so many “progressives” have with math, which they are certain is a fascist conspiracy against working people.(Why must 2 +2 always equal 4? That is just fascist authoritarianism. Why can’t we be flexible so it can sometimes equal 3, or 5?)
But this again is just an early breeze from the coming storm.
If you require coverage of more benefits, such as “free” check ups,“free” preventive care,“free” contraceptives,“free” preventive care, and everything Kathleen Sebelius says MUST BE COVERED to satisfy the individual mandate and the employer mandate, then fascist math says that means there must be higher premiums, just so those fascist insurance companies can have enough money to pay all their promised benefits.
To listen to you people, insurance premiums were stagnant before the passing of the Affordable Healthcare Act.
Hate to bust your myth but the cost of family coverage doubled between 1999 and 2009 (by 131% actually) and it was Obama that took the initiative to who put new rules in place to require all insurers publically justify any increases of more than 10 percent and spend at least 80 cents of every dollar they collect in premiums on medical care or return the difference to consumers.
In 2011, premiums increased by 8.5 percent over the previous year. That's less than the increases seen under Bushy boy yet you people are demanding that premiums be stabilized under Obama.... even though prescription drug makers and "non-profit" Catholic hospitals continue to increase their fees. You people are a piece of work.
FACT: "In 2012, U.S. companies and their employees saw the lowest health care premium rate increases in six years, according to an analysis by consultancy Aon Hewitt. The average health care premium rate increase for large employers in 2012 was 4.9 percent, down from 8.5 percent in 2011 and 6.2 percent in 2010. In 2013, however, average health care premium increases are projected to jump up to 6.3 percent." Still FAR, FAR, FAR lower than the increases seen under the Bush administration.
