Kaiser Family Foundation report blows holes in Obama’s false healthcare promises

Per ABC:

Workers at the Flora Venture flower shop in Newmarket, NH, remember when presidential candidate named Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., promised that their health care costs would go down if they elected him and his health care plan was enacted.

On May 3, 2008, the president told voters that he had “a health care plan that would save the average family$2,500 on their premiums.”

Last year workers at the flower shop saw their insurance premiums shoot up 41 percent.

“I basically work for the health care payments,” says manager Pat Cowhig, whose husband has medical issues.

Every day more news comes out exposing this colossal scam, and I keep expecting that one day the president, vice president, press secretary et al. will have to address the American people directly on the issue. When that happens, they’ll basically tell us (salty, Bidenesque language alert) this.
