Dead wrong on Obamacare.
One more Republican lie about Obamacare can now be put fully to rest
. There's more competition for 2015 in the health insurance exchanges, and that means low rate increases.
Obamacare premiums, once predicted to skyrocket in the second year under the government’s marketplace, have risen about 6 percent for 2015, according to an analysis of preliminary state filings.
While foes of the Affordable Care Act warned of double-digit rate increases, the costs of premiums seen so far is more modest for the new year. One reason may be that insurers who came in high in 2014 found themselves beaten out for enrollments. At the same time, 77 new insurance plans will be competing for customers in 2015, U.S. officials say.
No wonder Obamacare isn't the 2014 election horror story—it's just not that scary anymore. And yet, you've still got Mitch McConnell promising
repeal is going to be job #1 if he's majority leader next year. That tells you the most extreme faction of the GOP is still running their show. That the most extreme faction of the GOP won't just be in control of the House, but could be taking over the Senate.
