Health Insurance Costs Shifted to Taxpayers

The reason that the Obama administration can tout savings is that, starting in 2014, federal dollars will subsidize a big chunk of the purchase price of those policies. The price isn’t going down. Taxpayers are just paying a share.


There is no such thing as a free lunch. The so-called savings to families and individuals are not really savings. The costs to the families and individuals are being shifted to taxpayers through the subsidies.
