Health care costs rose by only 1.3% a year from 2010 to 2013, a new report from the White House Council on Economic Advisers shows. That's the lowest increase in a three-year period on record. White House officials cite the 2010 Affordable Care Act as a main factor in lowering costs.

to be fair this could have been caused by conservatives refusing to go to the doctor in case they were being turned into socialists but either way sounds like a win

Or maybe because people just don't have insurance and don't pay medical bills. Plus we all know news report only accurate statics...

This one is easy. People can't afford to go to the doctors. I remember when I was a little kid and I broke my nose playing baseball. My mom gave me some Tylenol, and told me to take a nap on the couch. I'm guessing this is happening all over the country.

The idea that health care expenditures have dropped somewhat since young people can be kept on their family insurance plans longer, causing less non insured expenditures, and preexisting conditions don't make it impossible to get insurance anymore (with the same results) pales in comparison to the logic that people stopped seeing doctors suddenly.

i think what a lot of people fail to realize about the aca is that it is unlikely to lower the cost of healthcare.  it was designed to lower the rate of increase... which it appears to be doing
