Great story in WeeklyStandard on a 34% increase in Healthcare Premiums as being good news.
White House called this a 21% savings because many of the people that would be hit with the 34% increase will qualify for tax-payer subsidies under ACA and their net would be a decrease.
Here is a good analogy. A golfer shoots an 88 but has a 20 handicap and tells everyone that he shot a 68? This is true.
Anyway you “slice” it a 34% increase is a a 34% increase.
