On a recent trip to Miami, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius admitted that, yes, some people will be paying more for health insurance under Obamacare:

"More back tracking now from the Obama administration admitting that some Americans will pay more for health insurance under the Affordable Care Act," said the Florida news anchor. "During a visit to Miami, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius stopped at a local library to talk to local residents about enrolling on the health insurance website. She also acknowledged that some people will pay higher premiums under Obamacare."

Said Sebelius, "There are some individuals who may be looking at increases. I think you cannot make a statement based on cost unless you compare what they had to what they're going into."
