ABC Reports Americans Spent More On Premiums In 2018 Than 2008, Forget About Obamacare

Linkedin Share

How many times did Barack Obama tell Americans that premiums would decline for American families when he stumped for Obamacare? A lot. A lot of times. Of course, he knew he was lying. Everyone knew.

But that didn’t matter. With the mainstream media on their side, Dems can say whatever you want and get away with it because they know the MSM will continue to push the lie onto the uninformed.

Now, ABC News ignorantly wants to know why premiums and deductibles are higher than they were pre-Obamacare. Imbeciles.

In 2008, middle-class workers spent about 7.8% of household income on premiums and deductibles.

By 2018, that figure had climbed to 11.5%.

Reactions:

This can’t be–we were assured most forcefully that Obamacare would make our health care costs go down.

This can’t be right. We were reliably informed the ACA would make health care more affordable.

Wasn’t a certain federal plan enacted that was supposed to provide healthvare for lower costs?

Wasn’t there some sort of legislation that was passed that was supposed to have fixed this? What happened to that?

What was that major piece of legislation passed in 2009 without ONE GOP vote that MIGHT have had something to do with this? If only I could remember…
