These numbers are from a GOP joint House/Senate report and as such need to be fact checked.

This story from Huffy Po and the WSJ only serves to give credence that the numbers in the above link are about right for the expected rise in Healthcare premiums in 2014.

The erosion of the US economy in 2 words - Jobs & wages.

The problems of the US economy are due to a transfer of wealth to the top 1%, (mostly via astronomical levels of military spending and Corporate Welfare) and a consistent and dramatic decline in real wages and disposable incomes.

QE and money printing is a mechanism to transfer the wealth of the many to the few.
The top 1% are still doing very well.
The 99% are NOT.

Congressional budget plans and why the US is in deep trouble.

All of the Fiscal Cliff deal, the full implementation of Obamacare and Current Federal Reserve printing are strongly recessionary.
The effects are already showing up in the jobs reports.
