ObozoCare: Confiscatory Success!

ObozoCare is well on its way to confiscating whatever Obozo's IRS has left behind.

[A] recent survey of 148 insurance brokers [...] shows that Obamacare is sending premiums upwards at the fastest clip in decades. The survey, conducted by Morgan Stanley, shows an increase in premium costs nationally of about 12 percent.

And it ain't over, as Harry Reid likes to say.

“They’re going to see an announcement that next year’s premium’s going to be 25 percent or maybe 50 percent higher than what they’re now paying,” says John Goodman of the National Center for Policy Analysis....

...Marc Bertolini, CEO of Aetna, recently told an earning conference that he anticipates 2014 spikes of 20 to 50 percent, going as high as 100 percent in some markets...(Fox News quoted at PowerLine)

In un-related news, food prices are up 19% in 2014.  So, as the (D) slime are fond of asking, which do you need more:  food, or healthcare?

Take your choice.

Surprise, surprise. Insurance brokers, when surveyed, say that Obamacare is the cause of all of our whoas. Even more shocking is that this ridiculous survey was picked up on by Fox News and then passed along as fact by Powerline and then you.

It shouldn't be a surprise to anyone that this kind of bullshit survey was reported at about the same time CBO revised downward the cost of ACA.
