Liar in Chief… Obama Argued That Premium Costs Would Go Down 14% – Instead, They Will Go Up 14%
The Obama-Pelosi Regime wanted to fundamentally change America. They did.
…And you’re stuck with the bill.
During the White House Summit on health care, Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.), chairman of the Senate Republican Conference, and President Obama argued that the Democratic health care bill would cause premiums to decrease.
Obama said premiums would decrease by 14% and attacked Sen. Alexander saying:
“This is an example of where we’ve got to get our facts straight.”
Watch how angry he gets…
Well now the facts are straight and it’s clear who was telling the truth and who wasn’t.
In 2011 employees’ share of premiums for a family plan is up an average of 14%, to $3,997.
It’s that time of year when employers deliver bad news about next year’s benefits.
Chances are you’ll learn that your 2011 health insurance tab will be sharply higher, as companies continue to shift the burden of rising costs onto their workers.
Employees’ share of premiums for a family plan is up an average 14%, to $3,997, vs. just a 3% rise in the total bill, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation.
And it’s not just premiums that are spiraling higher. You’re also likely to be hit with higher deductibles and out-of-pocket maximums as well as bigger bills for doctor’s visits and drugs.
“Increasingly, employees have to be thoughtful about not just the cost of the plan, but the cost of the services they use,” says Michael Thompson, a principal with Pricewaterhouse-Coopers’ human resources practice.
1 million to lose out on better coverage
It seems people are doing that, but not in the way experts recommend: Recent data suggest that many insured Americans are now forgoing care because of the cost.
Now we know… Nothing about what they promised is true.
