Promises, promises

A few people are backing the Democrat health "reform" bill because health care costs are rising.
President Obama says health insurance premiums would go down if the bill passes.
A leading Democrat, Sen. Dick Durbin just said premiums would go up, not down.
What Durbin says makes sense.
The proposal would increase the number of people who are insured, and create incentives for them to use more health care. How could that "bend the cost curve down" as Obama has said?
Also, on savings, the Joint Tax Committee says taxes will go up for those earning less than $200,000 a year.
That takes care of the Obama promise that anyone making less than $250,000 a year would not see their taxes go up as much as "one dime."
