A Kaiser Family Foundation study shows that health-insurance premiums for American employees spiked 9 percent this year compared to 2010. If you read the Foundation’s press release on the study, spinsters subtly try to divert attention from ObamaCare’s impact on the premium jump.

In fact, the lead researcher goes out of his way to praise the fact that 26-year-old “kids” now can stay on their parents’ health insurance policy. “The law is helping millions of young adults to obtain health coverage. In the past, many of these young adults would have lost coverage when they left home or graduated college,” said Gary Claxton.

But when it comes to including a comment on ObamaCare’s impact? Crickets.

Meanwhile, CNSNews.com carries the water for Kaiser by asking if ObamaCare contributed to the costs increase:

According to a Kaiser Family Foundation study of employer-provided health insurance plans, the ObamaCare health reform law could have accounted for as much as 50 percent of the spike in insurance premiums in 2011.

The Employer Health Benefits Survey by the Kaiser Family Foundation, which specializes in health care issues, found that health insurance premiums had jumped by 9 percent in 2011, up from a 5 percent annual increase since 2007.

Drew Altman, president and CEO of Kaiser, first said that the premium increase was not because of ObamaCare but then went on to say that the ObamaCare law probably accounted for 1 to 2 percentage points of that increase, which he further explained in a column today.

Altman went on to say that the 1 to 2 percent jump is partly because 26-year-olds may now stay on their parents’ policies. He also pointed out that most of ObamaCare’s provisions don’t go into effect until 2014.

So, things can only go downhill from here.
