The Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, continues to be characterized by conservative politicians as being a disaster for Americans. Those criticizing it avoid detail, typically referring to the “skyrocketing premiums” and to two remarks made by President Obama: “If you like your doctor, you can keep him,” and “Everyone will save $2,500 on health care costs.” The reason that opponents of Obamacare avoid detail is that an examination of the data shows the health care law has done far more good than bad.

The Kaiser Family Foundation recently studied documents submitted by health insurance companies detailing Obamacare premium price changes and the justification for those changes. The study revealed that premiums were increased by an additional 7% to 38% over what they would have been due to action taken by President Donald Trump. Insurers are required by the health care law to reduce copayments, deductibles and maximum out-of-pocket costs for individuals and families with incomes less than 250% of the Federal Poverty Level (FPL).
