The CEO of the Cleveland Clinic says that a majority of Americans who signed up for Obamacare have seen their premiums rise.

“About three-quarters of them find that their premiums are higher than they had been previously with other insurance,” Toby Cosgrove told Fox News.

Cosgrove explained that the Affordable Care Act is having a “major effect” upon health care providers.

“We know for example that we’re going to get paid less for what we do,” Cosgrove stated. “Hospitals are going to be paid less for what they do. We also know that insurers are paying less for what we do.”

Cosgrove said providers need to “become more efficient” in how they deliver health care.

That means only one quarter of those who "signed up" did not previously have insurance coverage, so there are still at least 29 Million uninsured to go.......

This is such a fraud from one end to the other.....I cannot imagine any other Administration in the history of the Republic who could have gotten away with something like this.
