Since the Yahidiots over at Yahoo decided that allowing hyperlinks to outside sourcing was simply too "radical" and "dangerous" and would lead to the cluttering up and possible catastrophic failure of the neural pathways of certain chatroom visitors,* I'll just have to AFFIRM that there's a nice chart on a certain subpage** of the Bureau of Labor Statistics website showing this dramatic rise in employer healthcare costs during the CheneyBushCo years in even greater detail, by year, including the overall 8 year rise of 72% I mentioned in my prior post..
* Granted, this probably IS a substantial risk for certain rightwingnutjob posters here on the CSCO board... Is our children learning?
** There can't be more than 3 or 4 subpages on something called the "BUREAU OF LABOR STATISTICS WEBSITE", so it should be EASY to locate without the deep link, right Yahoo? RIGHT?!
Between 2001 and 2009, employer costs of providing employee health insurance benefits skyrocketed from $1.16 per hour worked (2001), to $2.00 per hour worked (2009). That's an increase of SEVENTY-TWO PERCENT in just the EIGHT YEARS OF CHENEYBUSHCO. (Becuz I know yur not too swuft, I'll just point out that all happened BEFORE Obamacare, $#!+ferd.)
