My Health Care insurance premiums have increased every year since Obamacare passed. For 2013, they will increase again. I wonder when I'll see some savings promised by President Obama?
Here is a summary of my health care cost rise on percentage basis, with 2009 being the base cost when Obamacare was passed.
|Percent Increase in Cost|
|Year||Year to Year||Cumulative|
For reference, prior to 2008 our health care premiums were covered under an employer plan since I had not retired.
My analysis shows that our health care premiums have been increasing ever since Obamacare was passed. Maybe they would have increased anyway and maybe our premiums will decrease in 2014 after Obamacare goes into effect.
Maybe...but I'm not holding my breath :-)
