The Lies of Obamacare

I definitely recommend Peter Suderman’s article from the February 2014 issue of Reason, They Lied: Obamacare’s 12 false premises and broken promises. What’s your favorite lie? Mine is the false promise of “bending the cost curve down.” As Suderman notes:

Reality: The average annual premium for an employer-provided health plan rose from $13,375 to $16,351 between 2009 and 2013, according to a survey by the Kaiser Family Foundation. Prices for individual market plans like those found on the exchanges are also up, with the average state facing premium increases of 41 percent, according to a November 2013 analysis by Manhattan Institute health policy analyst Avik Roy.
