Barack Obama promised that Obamacare would reduce insurance premiums by $2,500 per family per year. He made this promise a whopping 22 times, as seen in the video above this story.
According to The Gateway Pundit, however, this was a blatant lie, as average premiums have skyrocketed for some groups by as much as 78 percent. Earlier this week, the AP reported that Obamacare premiums will go up by an average of 25% next year.
The AP reported:
Premiums will go up sharply next year under President Barack Obama’s health care law, and many consumers will be down to just one insurer, the administration confirmed Monday. That’s sure to stoke another “Obamacare” controversy days before a presidential election.
Before taxpayer-provided subsidies, premiums for a midlevel benchmark plan will increase an average of 25 percent across the 39 states served by the federally run online market, according to a report from the Department of Health and Human Services. Some states will see much bigger jumps, others less.
Moreover, about 1 in 5 consumers will only have plans from a single insurer to pick from, after major national carriers such as UnitedHealth Group, Humana and Aetna scaled back their roles.
“Consumers will be faced this year with not only big premium increases but also with a declining number of insurers participating, and that will lead to a tumultuous open enrollment period,” said Larry Levitt, who tracks the health care law for the nonpartisan Kaiser Family Foundation.
Obama has blamed this on millennials instead of taking responsibility for it himself.

This is yet another reason that it is CRUCIAL that Donald Trump beats Hillary Clinton in this election. If she wins, it’ll be another four years of Obama, and we as a nation literally cannot afford that.
