That lump of coal in your stocking? Baracka Claus built that.
As Twitchy reported in October, health insurance premiums climbed at a faster rate under Obama than they did during the last four years of George W. Bush’s presidency. Significantly lower Flexible Spending Account caps kick in next month, and thanks to Obamacare, many people are seeing huge premium increases hit their mailboxes just in time for Christmas.
Out: Holiday cheer. In: Holiday jeers thanks to Obama and his Affordable Care Act elves.
Seriously there should be a ban on sending health insurance renewal papers out so close to Christmas. Not good —

OUr health insurance, HSA, no prescription plan, just bumped us up to over $1700 a month. Does ANYONE have a cheaper plan? I'm just crushed.—

Well, maybe things will be better a year from now when most major Obamacare rules kick in?
