President Blames Businesses for Higher Insurance Premiums

According to President Obama, higher insurance premiums have nothing to with the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA). No, you should blame employers and insurance companies. The AP at a health care law pep rally in California reported:

The president said there would be "glitches" and "hiccups" in getting the system up and running. He said current premium increases Americans may experience are not a result of the law, but the result of employers shifting costs to workers or insurers "jacking up prices unnecessarily."

To steal from ESPN: C’mon man!

The President has embraced the PPACA so much that he’s called it “Obamacare.” He should own up to the consequences of the law and not shift blame.
