I guess somebody forgot to tell all these healthcare companies about Obamacare

This is really bizarre.  In 2008, Obama said he would lower healthcare premiums by $2,500 a year for the average family.

Then, we passed Obamacare.  He told us it would cost $900 billion over 10 years, but now the CBO tells us it will cost $2.6 trillion over 10 years.  Damn, if it’s going to be 3 times more expensive, then it should save us 3 times as much, right?  Healthcare costs should decrease by $7,500.  But I won’t hold Obama to that, I’ll just keep with the $2,500 promise.

But what’s weird is that Obama must have forgot to tell everybody about Obamacare because costs are skyrocketing.  Seniors are set to see a double digit increase in the costs of their drug plans next year. And the average family’s health insurance premiums have increased by over $3,000 since Obama became President.  So Obama’s promise is currently off by $5,565.

And by far the biggest increase came the very next year after Obamacare was passed.

If you combine the $3,065 increase in healthcare premiums with the $4,000 decrease in median incomes, it becomes much worse.  Things suck for the average family and they are only getting worse.
