    Anthem, which is owned by WellPoint Inc., had previously proposed to raise rates averaging 10.4 percent but as high as 30 percent for some 600,000 consumers. It agreed earlier this month to lower rate hikes to an average of 8.2 percent
    but this is probably just standard (non-Obama) negotiating tactics.  Notify everyone of outrageous hikes and then benevolently agree to merely rapacious ones.
