Really? Do we really think Obama didn’t see health insurance costs rising under Obamacare? I know he’s got some bonehead economists who think that alien invasions and broken windows are great for the economy, but I’m sure even they knew that dumping 40 million more people on to government rolls and layering rules upon regulations on the health industry wouldn’t lower costs.
Isn’t it more likely that higher costs are exactly what Obama expected and desired? Higher insurance costs mean less employers will offer health insurance which means more people will get their insurance through the government. That’s a win in Obama’s book.
