Another Obama promise said "His" plan for health care reform would reduce insurance premiums "up to" $2500 for a family.

After years of arguing back and forth, we now have some indication that promise, was indeed a big fat lie.

According to a poll by ABC News and the Washington Post, only 8% of Americans have actually gotten a reduction.

Obama really emphasized that single point over and over and over.

Now who can trust this guy for anything?

Obama has become the lie king and fib extraordinaire.

And for those who *Think* they got a "deal", well just wait till you go broke with the deductibles !!

Bankruptcy lawyers are not cheap either.




Despite President Barack Obama and Democrat's bold promise that Obamacare would lower the typical American family's health insurance premiums by $2,500, a devastating new Washington Post/ABC News poll finds that just 8% of Americans report lower health care costs because of Obamacare.

Worse for Democrats, 47% of Americans say their health insurance costs have gone up because of the president's signature legislative achievement.



interesting.
Where's My $2,500?

I guess somebody had to pay for those votes eh?

And of those 8% saying their costs are lower...

99.9% are lying. IMHO.

It is really interesting that the conservative websites always say stuff like this. I work in the insurance industry. I happen to know for a fact that this is NOT true. The vast majority of the people who bought through the exchange are paying lower premiums. Don't believe everything you read.

If the average savings is $2500, those 8% must have saved a bundle, seeing as how 92% didn't see a price reduction.... or paid more!

You do know that heath care cost inflation runs 4-6% right? Prices always go up. You knew that right?

The US pays the highest cost per capita for health care than any other western nation and life expectancy and user satisfaction keep declining. I'm sure you knew that too.

Heathcare in the US is no more than corporate driven predation and America is conditioned to hate the weak, old and poor. Shockingly, many people go right along with the programming. Were you aware of that?

Be a good citizen and off yourself at the first sign of trouble. The Insurance company CEO needs a new beach house.

Please tell me when the last time the annual insurance rates rose 30-50% in one term. I will wait here while you never find the numbers for that because it has never happened.

Which of course has absolutely nothing to do with Obama making the "promise".

He knew all that too !!

So why didn't he just make the case in a genuine way instead of lying to the public victims ???

Lol, selling car insurance doesn't exactly mean that you have knowledge of what is happening on the health insurance side of things. Quick which company is saving it's clients the most this year over last?

Agree with the bill or not, this is like saying Global Warming is a scam because it's cold out right now....

We have had a huge cliff on the horizon for some time because of rising costs. Even if Health Care Reform wasn't passed Obama would be a "useless socialist pile of crap" anytime a person broke their arm and was forced into decades of bills because they aren't insured.

And to be honest, I had a heart issue years before HCR, I've been insured through work for a decade, and I still paid almost 8000 out of pocket in a 12 month stretch just for testing when a murmur acted up.

The whole system is FUBAR

Thats what happens when all your healthcare is privatised. Say what you want but the NHS is one of the uks greatest achievements and i think the US would benefit greatly if something similar was implimented over there. Just take a fraction of that huuuuge military budget and use it for better things. But thats probably too socialist for most americans.
