Health Premiums Up $3,065; Obama Vowed $2,500 Cut

Where’s the cuts … You said ()… was it just “come on” lies to pass another law???

Yes let’s see how it’s going, and for now leave out the part where people are being reduced to part time work by Obamacare’s glorious future.

First off about that 2,500 reduction in premiums that you used to sell this crap. Did anybody, but the clapping seals belive it was true?

During his first run for president, Barack Obama made one very specific promise to voters: He would cut health insurance premiums for families by $2,500, and do so in his first term.

But it turns out that family premiums have increased by more than $3,000 since Obama’s vow, according to the latest annual Kaiser Family Foundation employee health benefits survey.

Premiums for employer-provided family coverage rose $3,065 — 24% — from 2008 to 2012, the Kaiser survey found. Even if you start counting in 2009, premiums have climbed $2,370.

What’s more, premiums climbed faster in Obama’s four years than they did in the previous four under President Bush, the survey data show.

There’s no question about what Obama was promising the country, since he repeated it constantly during his 2008 campaign.

In a debate with Sen. John McCain, for example, Obama said “the only thing we’re going to try to do is lower costs so that those cost savings are passed onto you. And we estimate we can cut the average family’s premium by about $2,500 per year.

At a campaign stop in Columbus, Ohio, in February 2008, Obama promised that “We are going to work with you to lower your premiums by $2,500. We will not wait 20 years from now to do it, or 10 years from now to do it. We will do it by the end of my first term as president.


Grand and glorious Big Government TALK, vs your reality … There is an old Texas saying about people like Obomba, ALL HAT NO CATTLE, for the pretend cowboy…
