AP: Actually, Premiums Will Go Up Under ObamaCare

No, your eyes are not deceiving you.  The Associated Press (!!!) is calling Barry out on one of his many lies about ObamaCare.

WASHINGTON — Buyers, beware: President Barack Obama says his health care overhaul will lower premiums by double digits, but check the fine print.

Premiums are likely to keep going up even if the health care bill passes, experts say. If cost controls work as advertised, annual increases would level off with time. But don’t look for a rollback. Instead, the main reason premiums would be more affordable is that new government tax credits would help cover the cost for millions of people.

Listening to Obama pitch his plan, you might not realize that’s how it works.

Visiting a Cleveland suburb this week, the president described how individuals and small businesses will be able to buy coverage in a new kind of health insurance marketplace, gaining the same strength in numbers that federal employees have.

“You’ll be able to buy in, or a small business will be able to buy into this pool,” Obama said. “And that will lower rates, it’s estimated, by up to 14 to 20 percent over what you’re currently getting. That’s money out of pocket.”

Nooo, that is an outright lie and even the Associated Press is calling you out on it.  But we all know that little things like facts don’t get in Barry’s way when it comes to talking up his goal to take over the best health care system on the planet in his quest to reshape America into a country that resembles Cuba.
