Another year of faster than promised increases in health insurance prices after Obamacare

Last year I had this post available here. This year we have this news:

The good news is that the cost of employer-sponsored health insurance is growing at a stable rate. The bad news is that the rate still exceeds inflation and worker wage increases, according to a survey from benefits consultant Towers Watson and the National Business Group on Health.
The annual cost of health coverage will rise nearly 6 percent to an average of $11,664 per employee in 2012, said the survey, which was released Thursday. The employee portion of that bill — or what comes out of worker paychecks — will climb, on average, 9.3 percent to $2,764. . . .
