Our first taste of Obamacare

The Seattle Times reported that “whopping rate increases are coming soon for many people with individual health-insurance policies.”

What? How can this be? Didn’t Democrats like Patty Murray and Rick Larsen promise that the Obamacare bill they forced on an unwilling nation would “bend the cost curve?”

Apparently Obamacare bent that cost curve, all right. The Democrats managed to bend the cost curve by as much as 23.7 percent in the upward direction. And the full bill hasn’t even been implemented yet.

Can you imagine how expensive your health insurance will be once Obamacare is fully in place?
