WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama told voters repeatedly during the health care debate that the overhaul legislation would bring down fast-rising health care costs and save them money. Now, he's hemming and hawing on that.
So far, the law he signed earlier this year hasn't had the desired effect. An analysis from Medicare's Office of the Actuary this week said that the nation's health care tab will go up — not down — through 2019

I'm not surprised, all I've seen so far are rate increases. Since all of the health care BS went into effect we've started paying quite a bit more for insurance through hubby's work (gotta pay for that milk expressing room somehow, right?!?) But really it's just like any politician, make candy coated promises you can't keep to get elected and then once you're in oops, the sour middle shows through.

How about this little gem? Is anyone really surprised?
Kathleen Sebelius (Secretary of Health and Human Services) is threatening to shut out those insurance companies who criticize ObamaCare. "She warned that bad actors may be excluded from new health insurance markets that will open in 2014 under the law. They'd lose out on a big pool of customers, as many as 30 million people nationwide."
Secretary Sebelius has now made it official by threatening that all insurance companies that continue to publicly say ObamaCare will put them out of business will be, ummmm, put out of business.
