Vice President Joe Biden told a gathering of state insurance regulators on Tuesday that “soaring” health care premiums are hurting families and businesses, underscoring the need for a health care overhaul. He cited a White House report from the National Economic Council showing premiums across states have been rising at a higher pace than wages over the last decade.
