Despite President Barack Obama and Democrat's bold promise that Obamacare would lower the typical American family's health insurance premiums by $2,500, a devastating new Washington Post/ABC News poll finds that just 8% of Americans report lower health care costs because of Obamacare.

Worse for Democrats, 47% of Americans say their health insurance costs have gone up because of the president's signature legislative achievement.

As Breitbart News reported on Sunday, the "Where is my $2,500?" question stands to upend vulnerable Democrats in the upcoming midterm elections. While President Barack Obama's Politifact "Lie of the Year"--"If you like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan"--directly affected 5,000,000 Americans whose policies were canceled due to Obamacare, Obama's $2,500 promise stands to enrage tens of millions more whose wallets have yet to see the $2,500 in savings Obama promised them.

Nervous Democrats have already blasted Obama for putting them in a weak position heading into the Nov. 4 midterm elections. Last month a Democratic member of Congress told the New York Times Obama is now "poisonous" to Democrats. And top Democratic pollster Celinda Lake said, "I'm worried this could be a disaster."

Democrats have already felt the sting of the "Where's my $2,500?" question. At a Minnesota town hall, one voter asked Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) and Rep. Tim Walz (D-MN) where his family's $2,500 in savings went.

"I thought the Affordable Care Act would save $2,500 per family. What happened?" asked the constituent.

The Minnesota Democrats stared at one another silently before bursting into laughter.

The latest Kaiser Health Tracking Poll finds that after four years of Obamacare, just 38% support Obama's signature legislative achievement.

The Washington Post/ABC News poll finds President Barack Obama hitting his lowest-ever approval rating of just 41%.

Really? You think this is funny? I don't see much humor in the wholesale destruction of the American healthcare system by a soul-stealing, waste-ridden federal government!!!

Not trying to defend Obamacare, but our healthcare system was a steaming pile of cow manure even before Obamacare.

Gubmint, via Medicaid and Medicare, and via social engineering in the tax code is what caused many of the problems in the pre-0bamacre healthcare system.  There isn't a damn thing that gubmint touches that it doesn't turn to crap.
