NYT Wrong, Again, on ObamaCare

October 28, 2014

Yesterday, The New York Times, a consistent cheerleader for ObamaCare, questions: Is the Affordable Care Act Working?  It should come as no surprise that the article states, as if it were fact, that “For now, dire warnings that the law would cause premiums for most people to rise sharply have proved unfounded.”

The truth?  As this Forbes article cites, new health research shows that non-group premiums (those policies families and individuals have to buy on their own instead of getting one from their employer) in 44 states have increased by an average of 24.4 percent versus what was expected prior to enactment of ObamaCare.

This also tracks what the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office reported during consideration of ObamaCare and Actuaries for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services continue to affirm.
