Sen. Richard Burr is one of the U.S. senators who questioned the promises of ObamaCare during a hearing with Marilyn Tavenner, who’s likely to be confirmed as the next head of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

He cited a recent analysis that insurers will face an average 30 percent increase in payouts for those covered by Obamacare, which could then be passed on to those insured outside of Obamacare.

But Tavenner suggested that other elements of Obamacare will “mitigate insurance increases,” though she conceded that not all of the projected higher costs will be absorbed by those elements.

Yep. And when this happens, there are going to be a lot of absolutely shocked people, who have swallowed all the pie-in-the-sky promises.
