By now everyone has heard about the plan to
require everyone (except for the usual suspects who never pay
for anything) to buy health insurance. Has anyone seen what the
Government option plan will cost? I have seen no numbers
anywhere. The Plan does impose a 2.5% tax on people who do not
pay for any insurance, but nowhere have I seen actual numbers
for what it will cost.
I currently pay about $3,600 per
year for Melanie and me, and that is with a $5,000 deductible,
so it is essentially a catastrophic plan. We do not have dental
insurance. Will dental insurance be included in the Government
plan? I haven't heard.
Since almost nobody has read the
Bill, there is no useful information being disseminated. How the
heck can anyone support this massive overhaul without even
knowing such simple details?
