Kelly Kennedy, USA TODAY -"Health care spending since the 2010 passage of the Affordable Care Act has risen by 1.3% a year, the lowest rate ever recorded, and health care inflation is the lowest it has been in 50 years, a report released Wednesday by the White House shows."

  1. Do you ever read the article?

    "One key area in which the law helped drive costs down, the report said, are the provisions that allow Medicare to reduce overpayments to providers and health plans. Another factor, Furman said, are fines for hospitals that readmit Medicare patients within 30 days of their release and the increased use of accountable care organizations".

    They're reducing care and treatment for the elderly. As with all nationalized health care systems rationing comes into play. Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, a key architect of Obamacare is a proponent of rationing ... where resources are reduced for the elderly and chronically ill so they can be used for the young and productive. Democrats are only pro-choice when it comes to killing babies. They don't want you to have a choice for anything else.

    When will you wake up?

    Article explaining how the media is playing a game of “gotcha” with Obamacare instead of reporting the facts.
