An Associated Press poll shows that Americans are, on average, smarter than Obama economists: they know Obamacare will make health insurance and health care more expensive:

Hattip Bryan Caplan, who passed along this comment:

Remember - the question asks people about their own costs.  So would pro-Obama economists disagree?  Or would they privately accept with these numbers - or even call them optimistic?  Non-economists probably interpret this question distributionally, but economists of all political persuasions would hopefully also consider the effect on the overall rate of growth of medical spending.
