According to a recent report from Kaiser, “the average employer-provided family health insurance premiums have climbed $2,976.” Here is an excerpt from an article on the National Republican Congressional Committee blog:
ObamaCare: Surging Premiums & Shattered Promises
While Congress has taken a one month hiatus in preparation for a busy fall, there’s been no August recess for the President’s failing health care legacy known as ObamaCare.
In the latest report from Kaiser, “the average employer-provided family health insurance premiums have climbed $2,976.”
Flashback to June 5th, 2008—at a town hall meeting in Bristol, Virginia, the President promised to “lower premiums by up to $2,500 for a typical family per year.”2 Promise broken.
In fact, the “survey found that the average family premium this year is $16,351, up 4% over the last year, and up 22% since 2009.”
And, as the next phase of implementation haunts the road ahead, there’s no wonder President Obama is sitting minus 18 on healthcare (39-57), a net movement of 21 points against the President since his reelection.
