Balanced approach: Health insurance premiums skyrocket as payroll taxes climb

Hmmm. Wasn’t the Affordable Care Act supposed to make health care … affordable?

OK, well, at least middle class workers can rest assured that the other parts of their paychecks won’t take a hit. Health care premiums and payroll taxes up? That couldn’t happen!

President Obama said he wants a balanced approach. What he meant was that he wants to raze the middle class.

Thanks a lot, Mr. President.
