Guess How Many Insurance Officials Raise Their Hands When Asked if Premiums Will Decrease By $2500 Like Obama Promised?

We were given a lot of promises about Obamacare, from seeing premiums decrease to being able to keep our plans if we liked them — none of which, of course, ended up being true. And apparently, major insurance officials knew that premiums wouldn’t decrease, too.

During a House hearing on Wednesday, Rep. Morgan Griffith (R-Va.) asked a group of seven insurance officials to raise their hands if they anticipated a premium reduction of $2,500 or more for the average American family, as President Barack Obama promised repeatedly.

Griffith first asked the question using the $2,500 figure. When no one responded, he cut the reduction to $2,000 or moreā€¦ then $1,500.

Not one official raised their hand.

Well, knock me over with a feather. Obama lied to us about insurance premiums dropping with socialized health care? If only they had figured out what was in it before they passed it.
