    It's absolute reality where I live. Did you want me to invent a scenario you find more comfortable?

    That appears to be your typical modus operandi for all of your posts.

    And yet, our annoited grand pooba messiah said he would solve the cost problem. And then obamacare did NOTHING absolutely NOTHING to address the cost of health care, it only punished the payors of health care, and drove up the cost by 300% of health insurance and drove up the out of pocket maximums by 250% and resulted in still 31 million uninsured. Nice job. And Biden wants to expand that disaster. Unbelievable really.

    Health care cost growth hit all-time lows under Obamacare. The U.S. has saved over $2 trillion so far relative to pre-Obamacare cost growth trends.

    Consumer prices for other consumer items were not increasing as well, at that time. It had more to do with wages being kept down due to a poor employment situation. I think it had to do with an overall situation rather than health care costs specifically.
