You know, I see articles like this and wonder what in freaking heck they are measuring. It has NO correlation to reality. Of course, anyone on a modest income / budget knows that the CPI is essentially useless, too.
Granted, the notion that costs / rates were not soaring B4 ObamaCare is silly too. The company I worked for was practically frantic, trying to keep its costs “level” (after overall inflation) for health insurance for its employees, changing plans every year or two. Even then, with every change, the employee contribution went up, and coverage down.
