Tyler, Tx (KETK) — Oh, my gosh.
What a surprise.
On the same week "Obamacare" turns three years old, the secretary of Health and Human Services, Kathleen Sebelious, admits
"Obamacare," lovingly referred to as the affordable health care act, will cost more money than they thought.
This, from the Wall Street Journal:
"Ms. Sebelius's remarks come weeks before insurers are expected to begin releasing rates for plans that start on January 1, 2014, when key provisions of the health law kick in. Premiums have been a sensitive subject for the Obama administration, which is counting on elements in the health law designed to increase competition among insurers to keep rates in check. The administration has pointed to subsidies that will be available for many lower-income Americans to help them with the cost of coverage."
Let's add millions of people to the program and tell the American people the costs will go down. We can depend on low information voters to swallow this lock, stock and barrel.
The paper goes on to add:
"Who knew all these mandates would be so expensive? Oh, that's right: ObamaCare critics, the most thoroughly vindicated group in modern American political history."
The health care law is not about health care. Never was.
It's about government taking over every step of your lives.
That's my point of view, what's yours?
