Flashback to Obama 2010: Under ObamaCare Your Premiums Will Fall “By As Much As 3000%”

Tuesday, October 25, 2016 20:14
% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

As ObamaCare continues to crack up, and premiums are set to soar an average of 22% next year — and as much as 116% in Arizona — it’s just good fun to sit back, relax, and press play as we watch President Obama circa 2010 tell us that our premiums are going down by as much as 3000%:

For Americans who get their insurance through the workplace — how many people are gettin’ insurance through their jobs right now? Raise your hands. All right, well, a lot of those folks — your employer, it’s estimated, would see premiums fall by as much as 3000% which means they could give you a raise!

That’s not a typo. He said three thousand percent.

(OK, OK. The White House later said Obama misspoke. He meant to say annual premiums would fall by $3000. Yeah, well, that didn’t happen either.)

As a bonus, he also said this in the same speech, delivered in Strongsville, Ohio on March 15, 2010:

So if you like your plan, you can keep your plan. If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor.

Remember that one? I thought you might! Wow, that “misspeaking” problem of his is really bad, huh?

I hope you all enjoyed this stroll down memory lane. The silver lining is that, once Hillary or Trump (OK, Hillary) gets into office, at least this guy has to leave.

    wow, redstate dot com’s website looks just like msnbc, abc, cbs, nbc, washington post and every other left wing rag, same hit pieces as all the rest against trump.. PROPAGANDA AND LIES.. imagine my lack of shock!

    Once upon a time, redstate was an actually good website, fair, accurate.. today it’s not remotely fair or accurate, just a hillary pompom bitch site!

    One of redstates articles from december 2009..
    And buried in the article is this “No entity or campaign gets a free pass — and that includes the campaign on which I serve. “Ye shall know them by their fruits,”

    Redstates current political attack on trump would strongly suggest that redstate desperately needs to change their websites name to BLUESTATE!
