    Health premiums are now $5,000 a year higher than Mr. Obama promised

    09/20/2012

    Remember when candidate Obama promised to REDUCE health insurance premiums by $2,500 per family, per year?

    Premiums have gone UP by that amount:

    Premiums went UP by $2,500, Mr. President!

    So our families are all, on average, paying $5,000 a year more than he promised.

    That's plenty of "change," I'll give him that.
