Led by President Barack Obama, the Democrats rammed through Obamacare behind closed doors without any Republican input allowed. Republicans have complained all along that Obamacare will be too expensive.

Ohio just completed an independent study of the effect of Obamacare on health care premiums. The result is that premiums are going to go up an average of 88 percent for Ohio citizens.

The Democrats in Congress realize Obamacare is going to drive up health care premiums for their own congressional staffs. They are now concerned that their staffs will not be able to afford health care insurance. So the Democrats are secretly trying to find out how they can subsidize these premiums for their employees.

Max Baucus, a Democratic senator who was one of the authors of Obamacare, says the implementation of Obamacare will be a train wreck.
