I don't have low income insurance, I'm an officer of a financial services company, I don't get food stamps or subsidies, our insurance is through a group formed for banks.I am an average family and mine went up $2000 not down. This is the experience of all people who had health insurance. This "average" you give is based on low income people getting subsidies and on young people forced to buy insurance that they do not want.
We all know the reality of it and I do not appreciate you telling me I had a savings with obamacare.
The premiums have gone up very slowly since ObamaCare was passed.
That's the reality, the average family plan costs around $18,000 now, before ObamaCare it was projected to to cost around $21,000, but ObamaCare bent the cost curve.
Those are the facts.
There are anecdotes, where people had "insurance" that didn't cover anything, that didn't cost much, and now they pay a lot more for coverage that covers things.
But on the average, people are paying less than they would have if ObamaCare had not passed.
