 Kaiser Family Foundation: Obama’s Health Care Legacy Currently A $3,000 Premium Increase ~ Yet 23 Million People

The most important story in health care today involves the release of the Kaiser Family Foundation‘s annual survey of employer-sponsored health insurance premiums.  According to the survey, premiums rose by $ 56 per month, or $ 672 per year, for the average family health insurance plan — that’s an increase of more than 4 percent, more than twice the rate of inflation.

As a reminder, candidate Obama said repeatedly his bill would CUT premiums by an average of $ 2,500 per family — meaning premiums would go DOWN, not merely just “go up by less than projected.”  The campaign also promised that that those reductions would occur within Obama’s first term.
