    Default Increase Health Spending By $7,450 For A Typical Family of Four

    Obamacare Will Increase Health Spending By $7,450 For A Typical Family of Four

    “In an Obama administration, we’ll lower premiums by up to $2,500 for a typical family per year….. We’ll do it by the end of my first term as President of the United States.”

    Unfortunately, the experts working for Medicare’s actuary have (yet again[1]) reported that in its first 10 years, Obamacare will boost health spending by “roughly $621 billion” above the amounts Americans would have spent without this misguided law.

    The federal Affordable Care Act will lead to an increase in health insurance coverage and higher enrollment among people who purchase individual policies, according to a new RAND Corporation study.

    While there have been some reports that the cost of individual policies may jump sharply under health reform, a RAND analysis of 10 states and the United States overall predicts that there will be no widespread premium increase in the individual health insurance market.

    Then there are educated people's opinions ... not those from Fuax news or ALEC.

    In the May issue of Health Affairs, two teams of Harvard researchers asserted that the recent slowdown in health care spending could be the beginning of a trend that will lead to decreased health care costs.
    Yes, decreased costs !

    Resolving the question of whether or not the United States has finally gotten a handle on health care spending is vitally important, because the choices we make going forward will have profound implications for our economy, the financial well being of millions of American families, and ultimately America's standing in the world.
