Health insurance premiums and deductables have been on the rise, and ABC News is exploring what’s happened, and why so many people don’t have insurance:
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

Anybody have any guesses?
That's a steep increase. I wonder what happened to the healthcare system during that period that might have led to it… https://t.co/kMsK4F3Ix0

Maybe somebody should make an updated version: “Unsolved Mysteries: Captain Obvious Edition.”
I remember when the people who predicted this would happen after ACA were called heartless monsters who wanted sick people to die quickly. https://t.co/QlGzTEdlcd

It's a good thing America's Conscience, Jimmy Kimmel, used his show to save the last healthcare fix implemented by Democrats. https://t.co/wLdHbZSPnb

I was told that premiums would go down and that is why we HAD to pass Obamacare. https://t.co/FdBH7V1wdt

Before the passage of the Affordable Care Act, Obama repeatedly promised that the law would save the average family $2,500 a year on premiums:
And now, ten years later, here we are.
So Obamacare didn’t lower costs. Who could have predicted that ?

Possibly the most ironically named law of all time.

What could possibly go wrong?
I think Democrats fully intended this to happen, so that they could push for even more control in the form of Medicare For All.
Like making the patient sick so you can swoop in under the guise of saving them. But if they get #MFA, Democrats will completely control your body.
