As ObamaCare continues to crack up, and premiums are set to soar an average of 22% next year — and as much as 116% in Arizona — it’s just good fun to sit back, relax, and press play as we watch President Obama circa 2010 tell us that our premiums are going down by as much as 3000%:
For Americans who get their insurance through the workplace — how many people are gettin’ insurance through their jobs right now? Raise your hands. All right, well, a lot of those folks — your employer, it’s estimated, would see premiums fall by as much as 3000% which means they could give you a raise!
That’s not a typo. He said three thousand percent.
(OK, OK. The White House later said Obama misspoke. He meant to say annual premiums would fall by $3000. Yeah, well, that didn’t happen either.)
As a bonus, he also said this in the same speech, delivered in Strongsville, Ohio on March 15, 2010:
So if you like your plan, you can keep your plan. If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor.
Remember that one? I thought you might! Wow, that “misspeaking” problem of his is really bad, huh?
I hope you all enjoyed this stroll down memory lane. The silver lining is that, once Hillary or Trump (OK, Hillary) gets into office, at least this guy has to leave.
