Health Insurance Premiums Rose Faster Last Year Than 8 Prior Years COMBINED

According to eHealthinsurance, healthcare premiums have risen 39 percent during the past year.  That compares to premium rises of 31 percent during the entire 8 year prior period (2005 to 2013).  Thanks Democrats!!  With friends like that, who needs enemies?  From Daily Caller,
Between 2005 and 2013, average premiums for individual plans increased 37 percent and average family premiums were upped 31 percent. So they have risen faster under Obamacare than in the previous eight years.
From Forbes using data from HHS, the graphs below show the average increase in premiums for 27 and 40 year old persons by State.  The increases are substantial.  The HHS didn't give data for older Americans, so the premium increases must be even higher and politically "inconvenient."   After all, we have an HHS as a part of the Ministry of Propaganda.
