Obama promised on numerous occasions that the average family of four will save $2,500 a year in premiums.

Where did that number come from?  Three Harvard economists wrote a memo in 2007 in which they claimed that then-Senator Obama’s health-care plan would reduce national health-care spending by $200 billion. Then, according to the New York Times, the authors “divided [$200 billion] by the country’s population, multiplied for a family of four, and rounded down slightly to a number that was easy to grasp: $2,500.”

Just like when my wife "saves" money at the store. Every time she does that my bank account total goes down!

Every time President BO (the amateur president) saves us $2,500.00, the cost goes up!

Whenever the government gets involved in the private sector, prices go up and quality goes down.

LR: I heard today that they are having massive trouble signing up the ones they need, so they have decided to "offer" a stripped down plan to bring the price down. They are infinitely self-defeating.
