Unexpected!

At a White House press conference Friday afternoon, President Obama said that health insurance plans offered under Obamacare will be “significantly cheaper” than plans currently on the market, but a string of recent reports say that isn’t true.

“What happens on October 1, in 53 days, is for the remaining 15 percent of the population that doesn’t have health insurance, they’re going to be able to go on a website or call up a call center and sign up for affordable, quality health insurance at a significantly cheaper rate than what they can get right now on the individual market,” Obama said on Friday.

But, as CNN reported this week, rates will be 35 percent higher in Florida and 41 percent higher in Ohio on average under Obamacare.

The president’s health care law is also projected to drive up health care costs for many people currently on employer-provided plans.

The Associated Press reported yesterday that insurance companies “have already warned small business customers that premiums could rise 20 percent or more in 2014 under the Affordable Care Act,” and some companies may respond by not paying for insurance coverage for their employees’ family members.

Even the MSM isn’t buying this line anymore, which is all you need to know about just how detached from reality this guy is. If there is any hope left out there, it’s that there will be some serious sticker shock that the Republicans can turn to their advantage.

He's always been the most ignorant about the realities of his "signature" legislation.

Mostly because he had nothing to do with drafting it. And because he's never paid any attention to the reality of its effects.

Worst President in history.

"Obama Is Still Lying About Obamacare"

Naturally, it's not like he has a choice.

Health costs have already gone up for people, months before the law went into effect. At the beginning of the year my employer charged me a surcharge for having my wife on my plan because she has access to her own healthcare through her employer. That did not exist prior to January 1st.

Everything about Obamacare is a lie.

Does the ObamaPhone operator help people connect to the exchanges? How does that phone tree work: Press 1 to speak to an OFA representative about completing voter registration forms in all the counties you have ever visited; Press 2 to report a "right wing nut job" to the IRS; Press 3 if you want free health care; Press 4 if you have family members in another country that want free health care; Press 5 if you want to leave a message on why you love Obama; and Press 9 if you need a new ObamaPhone.

He has to lie, because the truth is inconvenient.
