    My health care premium was has up from $50 to $200 (as an individual) in 4 short years (an increase of what, 300%?)

    Between that and my yearly rent increases (an increase of 20% since I moved in, and that is for a rent stabilized apartment in NYC) I am definitely worse off than I was 4 years ago, despite cost of living increases.

      Obama's health economists have estimated that you should see a reduction in your premium costs for your health insurance of about $2500 per year.  That should help people like you a lot!  

      And he will give anyone making under $250,000 a year a tax cut, to help you with your increased housing and gas costs.

      Hang in there.  HOPE IS ON THE WAY!

      Health care is a human right.
