With Only 60 Days to Go, Administration Refuses to Confirm Americans Will See the President’s Promised $2,500 Cut in Health Care Premiums

August 01, 2013

Today, during testimony before the House Ways and Means Committee, a key official from Health and Human Services leading implementation of the President’s health care law, would not confirm that Americans will see their health insurance premiums lowered by $2,500 – despite that is exactly what President Obama promised when selling the law to the American people.  With just 60 days before the health care exchanges are scheduled to open, it is clear the Administration still cannot tell hardworking families what their health insurance will cost.  Unfortunately, this should not surprise hardworking families, given that Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius has acknowledged that premiums will actually increase as a result of ObamaCare.
