Hope 'n' Change: ObamaCare Premiums and Death PanelsRecall the halcyon days of 2008 and 2009 when Barack Obama promised, "If you already have health insurance, the only thing that will change for you under this plan is the amount of money you will spend on premiums. That will be less." Good times, good times.Along with just about every other lofty promise that came with the Unaffordable Care Act, this one has come crashing back to earth. A recent California report on premiums in the Golden State seemed to show that costs would be lower than expected. Actually, the truth is that premiums will cost as much as 146 percent more than today. The reason is that California, as The Wall Street Journal put it, "goosed the data" and "wasn't comparing apples to apples."Meanwhile, the IRS issued a final ObamaCare regulation last week that assumes that the cheapest family health insurance plan will cost $20,000 a year by 2016. And the House Energy and Commerce Committee just published a report called "The Looming Premium Rate Shock" detailing that some premiums could quintuple. In fact, Politico reports, "Dozens of lawmakers and aides are so afraid that their health insurance premiums will skyrocket next year thanks to Obamacare that they are thinking about retiring early or just quitting."As premiums rise, however, leftists are bending over backwards to explain that it's no big deal because everyone will be better off -- well, except for the millions paying more for insurance, or the 31 million people who still won't have insurance. Funny, but we don't remember hearing any of that in 2009 or even 2012.The BIG Lie"Competition and choice are pushing down costs in the individual market, just like the law was designed to do." --Barack Obama just last week in California
