NEW YORK (Reuters) - Consumers will have to dig deeper into their pockets next year to pay for costlier healthcare, more expensive grocery bills and higher taxes, an extra drag on the country's already slow-moving economy.

Senh: This is a pessimistic view. Lately, most of the economic reports have been positive. Unemployment is at a 4.5 year low, consumer sentiment at a five year high, housing market is rebounding, and consumer debt is at pre-recession levels.
