Breaking: Health Care Cost About to Go Through the Roof Next Year

Who, (besides the low-info liberals) didn't see this one coming?

Via Politico:
Health experts see big price hikes for Obamacare
Premiums could rise more sharply in 2016. 
"The cost of Obamacare could rise for millions of Americans next year, with one insurer proposing a 50 percent hike in premiums, fueling the controversy about just how “affordable” the Affordable Care Act really is. 
The eye-popping 50 percent hike by New Mexico insurer Blue Cross Blue Shield is an outlier, and state officials may not allow it to go through. But health insurance experts are predicting that premiums will rise more significantly in 2016 than in the first two years of Obamacare exchange coverage. In 2015, for example, premiums increased by an average of 5.4 percent, according to PwC’s Health Research Institute."

 20%-30%-50% increases, and the rest are all "moderate", right?  Anyone remember when the Feds took over the student loan programs from the private bankers---another “we can do a better job at controlling cost” joke Obama presented, and our dear liberal friends swallowed.  The “unexpected” result was, since the Fed guaranteed these loans, there would be no defaults---so the greedy college institutions raised their rates sending tuition cost skyrocketing.

The insurance industry and the Big Pharma’s, (both huge investors/special interest in pushing for ObamaCare), are now beginning to reap the benefits of their investment---the great ObamaCare Scam of the 21st Century.  Both will point their fingers at each other blaming the rising cost, and in the meantime the insurance industry will be seeking a massive federal, (taxpayer funded), bailout---to the tune of a couple of trillion dollars just for starters---and the industry will fall under the “too big to fail” category,  (just like the big banks did in 2009, only this time the taxpayers won’t be paid back.

All of this under the guise of a 100% Democrat-passed Affordable Care Act---a government-controlled take-over of the health insurance industry, another failed experiment in federal socialism.

Halperin excused?

Conservatives constantly (e.g., Kilmeade on Fox and Friends this morning (5/12) with McChrystal) criticize this administration for refusing to "name the enemy." 

Yet when it comes to an obviously biased, liberal reporter like Mark Halperin, conservative media explains it away.  This morning on F & F, both Laura Ingraham and Charles Krauthammer claimed that the interview was not representative of Halperin.

Eau contraire.  

Since 2004, Halperin has been little more than a liberal guard dog.  You will recall that as political director for ABC News he instructed his subordinates to have a higher standard of scrutiny for Bush claims than Kerry, that they should not "artificially" or "reflexively" hold both sides "equally accountable."

There is simply no doubt that Halperin has already assumed the same role for the 2016 election. 

The interview with Senator Cruz is simply another indication that Halperin is doing all that he can to avoid giving in to his own "reflexive" and "artificial" temptations to hold both sides equally accountable. 

A "fair-minded" and "excellent" reporter does not even consider such questions, much less ask them.

That the senator is gracious does not exculpate conservative media for refusing to call a biased, liberal reporter "biased and liberal."
