Hmmm...I wonder if that’s before or after the $2500 savings.

NUKE OBAMACARE (AKA Obamakill) and shrink the $4 trillion government beast so it can be stuffed back in its Constitutional cage.

You put it out in the media as 26%.

Then when it comes out as 9%, people think it’s good news...

Q: What infamous historical pathological liar repeatedly promised the American People that healthcare insurance premiums would go down $2500/year under his plan?
