FLASHBACK: Obama Says Obamacare Will Decrease Premiums by 3000 Percent

As everyday Americans grapple with healthcare premium increases of 116 percent on top of losing their primary care doctors and networks, the White House and Democrats are attempting to do damage control. 

During a speech last week in Miami, President Obama said rate increases have nothing to do with him. Just Today, Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton argued she'll "fix" the imploding program. 

Obama's claim of non-responsibility particular draws a lot of critical attention considering the great promises he made to the American people in order to pass the "Affordable" Care Act without a single Republican vote in the dead of night. 

In 2010, he said Obamacare would decrease employer offered healthcare premiums by 3000 percent. Today employers are dumping healthcare coverage for employees in droves.

Obama also repeatedly said families would see their premiums decrease by $2500.

Considering Hillary Clinton essentially wrote Obamacare in the 1990s with Hillarycare and that Obama is actively campaigning on her behalf, she owns this. Trump would do well to stay on message about the ever cascading broken promises and destruction of healthcare the vast majority of Americans used to enjoy.
