Another Broken Promise (Lie)… Workers Will Pay More For Health Care Starting NEXT YEAR …Update: Businesses Too

It should be obvious by now that the Obama-Pelosi regime lied about most everything in their health care bill before they rammed it through Congress.
Here’s the latest example:

In their health care report (screengrab above) Barack Obama and Joe Biden promised Americans:

Under the plan, if you like your current health insurance, nothing changes, except your costs will go down by as much as $2,500 per year.

It was a lie.
Your costs will not go down “by as much as $2,500 per year.” Instead you can expect to pay more… Starting next year.
The Republican.Senate.Gov released this report today:

“Workers Will Pay More For Their Health Care Next Year As U.S. Companies Prepare For Provisions Of The Overhaul Signed Into Law By President Barack Obama”

“Workers Will Pay More For Their Health Care Next Year As U.S. Companies Prepare For Provisions Of The Overhaul Signed Into Law By President Barack Obama, According To A Survey Released Today. About 63 Percent Of Businesses Plan To Make Employees Pay A Higher Percentage Of Their Premium Costs In 2011, said the Washington-based National Business Group on Health, which surveyed 72 companies that employ more than 3.7 million people. The survey showed 46 percent plan to raise the maximum level of out-of-pocket costs that workers must bear. The companies surveyed expect health-care benefits costs to increase an average of 8.9 percent next year.” (“Health Plans To Take Bigger Bite Out Of Paychecks, Survey Shows,” Bloomberg, 8/18/10)
