Get a load of this BS. President Obama told radio interviewers that for many people health care premiums will cost less than a cell phone bill under Obamacare.
“Anybody who doesn’t have health insurance in this country is going to be able to get it at an affordable rate, and we were just talking with some folks earlier about the fact that for a lot of people it’ll be cheaper than your cellphone bill.”

According to a report by the CTIA Wireless Association, the average American pays $47.16 a month for cellphone service, which is actually a steep decrease from the $71 per month Americans were paying on average in 2012. Moreover, many smartphone users on a major carrier like AT&T or Verizon may be playing close to $100 per month – and that’s just for an individual plan.
Regardless, Obama’s claim fails to hold any weight when you consider that the average 21-year-old male will pay $214 monthly through the law’s healthcare exchanges, a 42-year-old woman will be charged $284 a month and a 62-year-old man will pay a whopping $615 monthly.

He insults the American people every time he opens his mouth.
