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?
