Another "ObamaCare Lie" May Be True After All

Awhile back there were reports that Medicare premiums would soar under ObamaCare. Since then, the left has spun tirelessly to discredit that claim, saying Medicare premiums would actually go down.

So, what is the truth? All you need to do is think about it.

Currently, a huge number of doctors will not take Medicare patients because Medicare does not pay enough to cover the doctor's costs. And many who do accept Medicare are not taking on any more patients.

Now add 30 million people to the rolls. If you think it's difficult to find a doctor that will take Medicare now, just wait until all those folks start looking for one.

The government will only have one choice - increase the amount of Medicare payment they pay doctor's, enticing doctor's to accept Medicare patients. And if they increase the amount they pay out, they will have no choice but to increase Medicare premiums.

So, you decide - will premiums go up, as critics of ObamaCare claim, or will they be the only thing in the history of the world (besides housing) to go down?
