    Sales tax on health insurance:

    A new sales tax on health insurance that will add to the cost of coverage for people purchasing coverage on their own, for small employers, and for Medicare and Medicaid beneficiaries with private coverage.
    The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) said that this tax will be “largely passed through to consumers in the form of higher premiums.” And an analysis by Oliver Wyman estimates that this tax “will increase premiums in the insured market on average by 1.9% to 2.3% in 2014,” and by 2023 “will increase premiums 2.8% to 3.7%.”
    Amount of tax collected over next 10 years...$73 Billion
    "What are the new taxes included in Obama's Healthcare Bill?"

    Letter from the Congressional Joint Committee on Taxation to Senator Kyl.


    So if this excise tax remains in effect, a family of four will pay $350 - $400 a year more for health insurance.

    This fee is part of ObamaCare.

    This is part of the cost that the people that calculate insurance premiums, "actuaries" have projected that will cause private health insurance premiums to increase 122% by 2017.
    SOA - Society of Actuaries - Design and Implementation Considerations of ACA Risk Mitigation Programs
    This report:Design and Implementation Considerations of ACA Risk Mitigation Programs
    pages 6 and 7 and you'll see Average annual premium of $2,553 will increase (These EXPERTS calculate!!) to in 2017 $6,158 and 141% increase!!!

    Just an interesting observation... MOST Anti-Obama/Anti-progressive contributors here usually providing SOURCING for their comments where as the Obamatron/Democrat/Liberal provides anecdotal, subjective, hysterical and name calling with NO sourcing for their wild statements!
