Here’s some information from ABC News that no one should consider breaking news: deductibles and premiums for middle-class workers have gone up since 2008:
In 2008, middle-class workers spent about 7.8% of household income on premiums and deductibles.
By 2018, that figure had climbed to 11.5%. https://t.co/u1iaCkAfoA

What was that major piece of legislation passed in 2009 without ONE GOP vote that MIGHT have had something to do with this? If only I could remember…

Wasn't a certain federal plan enacted that was supposed to provide healthvare for lower costs?

This can't be right. We were reliably informed the ACA would make health care more affordable.

Recheck your math. We were told it would go down with Obamacare

Wasn't there some sort of legislation that was passed that was supposed to have fixed this? What happened to that?

Yes, the ACA was not what the name implied, now was it? https://t.co/QOtMN18EG7

If only we had passed Obamacare to lower our premiums. Oh wait…

This can't be–we were assured most forcefully that Obamacare would make our health care costs go down.
— DrM (@DrMagnolias) November 21, 2019
If only there were people telling America in 2009 that Obamacare would do just this.

Is this why the amazing moderating panel last night didn't ask once why Dems think they can fix a system when they said they could last time and made it worse?

It's really simple. Obamacare increased the costs for companies to comply with the law. More compliance costs, higher premiums

Every single time.
Prices skyrocket when the government takes over.

That's what we tried to tell all of you Obama-hype sycophants (yes, you too, ABC!) in 2010 when Jonathan Gruber was busy duping a plurality of the public! https://t.co/9QzHaIzXFf pic.twitter.com/SdM5JyS6Fq
