Despite Obama Promises, Health Care Costs Have Risen the Most in 32 Years

Despite years of Obama’s promises that America’s health care costs would go down if Obamacare was passed into law, new statistics show that care and insurance premiums have risen more this year than in the last 32 years.

A report by Kaiser/HRET Employer Health Benefits released on September 14 found that the average American family’s health care plan costs over $18,000 a year. That is up 3.5 percent over 2015, a hike exceeding the growth in wages.

While it is bad on individuals, in the chronically poor Obama economy, it is worse on employers.

Just wondering the average cost of a midrange policy before we got to see what's in it, and now.

Probably right in line with inflation, right?

Or is it doubled?

Remember the $2500 savings promised?

Promise anything that needs to be promised, but don't worry about HONORING those promises....thats just politics.
Talk and promises.

Vote for someone who has actually ACCOMPLISHED something that didn't involve taking a bribe, taxing someone, or establishing a new law.

Or.....keep cheering.

And the care received does not always correspond with the amount of costs.

Just one of many lies this president has told the American people.

Care First of Maryland had to send back premium money for 2015 because they didn't spend 80% on care. I know because I got a check.
