Obama Promised Healthcare Premiums Would Fall $2,500 Per Family; They Have Climbed $4,865

Employer-based health insurance premiums climbed 4.2% this year for family plans, according to an annual Kaiser Family Foundation report. That’s up from 3% the year before.

Since 2008, average family premiums have climbed a total of $4,865.

The White House cheered the news, saying it was a sign of continued slow growth in premium costs.

“We will start,” Obama said back in 2008, “by reducing premiums by as much as $2,500 per family.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The White House is cheering because as premium costs go up, so do the tax revenues ... they think.

The problem is that Americans are so broke that to pay for the health insurance premiums, they have to forego something else, so the actual net change to tax revenues is actually nil! Government and corporate policy is still operating in a fantasy world where there is plenty of wealth here in the hands of the people, if they can only figure out another way to take it from us.
