Investor’s Business Daily’s John Merline was first to note the difference in premiums climbing faster under Obama than the previous four years under Bush.
Experts point to rising health care costs as the driver of increased individual spending and higher premiums.
During the 2008 campaign and health care reform debate in 2009, President Obama said repeatedly that his plan would bend the cost curve downward, ultimately saving the average family $2,500 per year.
Costa have risen an average of $4500, are you wearing your teabag hat?
Did you miss the rest of the story?

“Many of the changes in the Affordable Care Act are starting this year, and in succeeding years,” DeParle told ABC News,“and by 2019 we estimate that the average family will save around $2,000.”
DeParle said that the “big increases that occurred (in 2010) were probably driven by insurance plans overestimating what the impact would be and maybe trying to take some profits upfront before some of the changes in the Affordable Care Act occur.”

Administration officials say they never claimed health care costs would go down, only that they would grow at a slower rate than they would have without the Affordable Care Act.

“It is clear that in recent years health care cost growth has slowed,” Health and Human Services department spokeswoman Erin Shields Britt told ABC News.“In the ten years before the health care law was passed, health care costs increased at 8.7 percent per year on average, according to the independent Kaiser Family Foundation. This study showed a rate of increase of 3.8 percent in 2010 and 4.6 percent in 2011, while in a separate study, the Kaiser Family Foundation recently estimated a rate of increase of 4.0 percent in 2012, illustrating that overall health-care cost growth has significantly slowed in recent years.”

I always understood secrecy from the government due to security purposes but things coming from rhe White House are not quite true and the administration's answers   or non answers leave much to be desired.  Benghazi (spelling) and the picture painted by this adminstration certainly appears questionable.  The Republicans had Watergate but at least no one was killed!

Giving us free will we can choose anything we want including choosing hell. I'm sure you have seen those of us who are about to pass on. The Church states that there is a tremdous battle for the person's free will by Satan and the devils trying to persuade the person to choose the Devil. It is why we have the Hail Mary with the ending Holy Mary Mother of God pray for us sinners now and at the hour of death.

Your 'Church' is a business set up to rip off weak poor people using guilt, and is not in line with Christ's original teaching which your 'Church' changed to suit it's business plan.

To present you with facts I post Obama's colleagues all of whom are registered to the communist party or are socialists:

Also to comment on your post of no one doing anything on this site, First I must say I was a Committeeman In Smithtown in my youth and ran for political office for which I had to vote   for a political rep of our party.  I also was a campaign manager for a congressional candidate.  Now that I'm an ancient, I have gotten away from the political stuff because politically the U S is on the wrong tract.  I do devote my time to pro life as I believe what Jesus said that "What good does it do you to gain the whole world and lose your soul" which is happening in the U S today.  Many of us have been in the trenches!

It's important that you understand that you are insane. When I say that, I don't just mean that you're a little wacky or off-center...you are clinically and completely insane.

There is no devil nor is there a heaven. People of lower intellect like yourself often use these childish ideas to keep order among the dimwits.

The Bible is a book of fairy tales which was designed to keep ancient people in line, and it has served its purpose, but its time for modern people to understand that nobody parted the Red Sea, nobody built an arc and filled it with animals to escape a flood and nobody talked to Moses through a burning bush. Pull your head out of your ass and start thinking for yourself.

A neighbor of mine had this in the local paper yesterday.  In many ways he nails it.  The county I live in gave Obama 25% of the vote. 

To the editor:

Well, the election is over and we, as a nation, have failed to do what is best for our country. I have a few thoughts concerning the reasons that we failed which I feel compelled to share whether anyone wants to hear them or not - so here goes:

According to the "exit polls" and the analysts, Obama won with fewer votes cast for him in this election than when he was first elected. This is the first time this has ever happened. Also, Romney got fewer votes than did McCain four years ago. Three million fewer Republicans voted in this election than they did four years ago. Some Republicans have come forward since the election and said that they didn't vote for Romney for the same reasons they didn't vote for McCain, and that was because he wasn't conservative enough.

Let me say for starters that you people are idiots. I doubt that there are many people with a more conservative view than mine and I repeat that you are idiots. If you think that any candidate has to be perfect before you will vote for them, may I remind you that there has only ever been one perfect person and that was our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. That leaves a lot to be desired for the rest of us in the perfection department. Your quest for perfection has not only allowed a big government socialist to be elected to the office of president, but you have allowed him to be re-elected to do not only four years of damage but eight years of damage to this country. The time to search for perfection is during the primaries and the nomination process.

Now let me make some more people angry. All you Republican party establishment idiots who keep telling us we have to nominate a candidate who will appeal to the independents instead of the most conservative candidate, you are a bunch of fools. Romney won over independents overwhelmingly. He still lost because your base did not show up to vote.

Now let me step on more toes and address the Christian community of which I am a long-standing member. For those who went to the polls and voted for Romney, I give you my warmest thanks and gratitude. You did the right thing.

For those Christians who did not vote because you think that you should not get involved or don't want to get involved, let me remind you that the only thing it takes for bad things to happen is for good people to do nothing. How can any Christian not cast a vote against a candidate and a party who supports abortion which is nothing more than the murder of the unborn? Obama even supports the murder of a baby that happens to survive an attempted abortion that fails and the baby is born alive. That is a fact - check it out.

I am also talking about Christians in the black churches across the country. If you voted for Obama because he is black and so are you, you should have been a Christian first instead of black first. All Christians should be "color blind." We are all brothers and sisters in Christ. God is no respector of persons. He tells us that in his Word. I am also sure that God would not want his children to support murder.

I truly believe that if every Christian in this country had cast a vote against the candidates and the party that supports abortion and other ungodly pursuits, that not only would this election but the entire moral face of this nation would and could have been changed forever.

I don't know whose toes I may have stepped on with this letter nor do I care. Let God be the judge of my heart and my intent. He is the only judge that concerns me.

I hope that this letter would not only be published in The (Lewistown) Sentinel but somehow be picked up and published all over the country. I think everyone should read it.

I used to listen to Bob Grant. I remember him always saying we are becoming a third world country. His prediction nailed it. The U S debt, the political immorality and the conniving of this administration has surely put us there.

The libs had a field day reviewing the film

1~ " Right Wing Documentary "Agenda: Grinding America Down" Expected to Be a Flop

I watched the trailer for this film, and I think it creates a stereotype and a straw man. Bowers uses fear mongering to try to rally people to his "right" side, away from the evil left. In this film, the left side, composed of Marxists, communists, and socialists, are evil people who hate God and the family structure, revel in sin and debachery, and lazily take money from the government, money from hardworking people's tax dollars. It goes on to say this dependence on the government will lead us all to a fascist state. As they are saying this, they show images of Hitler and concentration camps."

No, I did read it. when you add 20 million people who are not responsible enough to take care of themselves and zero additional Doctors, it is going to cost more; supply, demand. And those demanding will demand more because it is free for them. When does personal responsibility return?

There was no need to cut and paste the rest, the point is, making speculation of costs out to 2019, is absurd. Show me one government program that came in on budget projection?

Rush Limbaugh said you can't beat Santa Claus.  The Dems and Obama have a false charity.  All charity is based on short term help.  Not life times.  True charity from the church or private orginzations helps you get off your feet short term.  Government keeps the yoke around your head and makes you lazy with no achiement goals

Jesus left the temple and was walking away when his disciples came up to him to call his attention to its buildings. 2 “Do you see all these things?” he asked.“Truly I tell you, not one stone here will be left on another; every one will be thrown down.”

3 As Jesus was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to him privately.“Tell us,” they said,“when will this happen, and what will be the sign of your coming and of the end of the age?”

4 Jesus answered:“Watch out that no one deceives you. 5 For many will come in my name, claiming,‘I am the Messiah,’ and will deceive many. 6 You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. 7 Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. 8 All these are the beginning of birth pains.

9 “Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of me. 10 At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, 11 and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. 12 Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, 13 but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved. 14 And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.

10 At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, 11 and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. 12 Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold
