But I don't think so. The money just isn't there, and never has been. The reason that "30 million will now have health care" is that the Fed.Gov is fixin' to make them buy insurance. They don't buy it now, because it's too expensive. Frankly, the reason that the left is so mad about this bill is because it won't lower the cost, but people will have to buy it or the IRS will fine them:
A middle class family of four making $66,370 will be forced to pay $5,243 per year for insurance. After basic necessities, this leaves them with $8,307 in discretionary income — out of which they would have to cover clothing, credit card and other debt, child care and education costs, in addition to $5,882 in annual out-of-pocket medical expenses for which families will be responsible.Right now, folks are thinking they're going to wake up and it'll be Christmas morning. Actually, it's going to be April 15. Buy a gun, people. And vote.
Thanks to Gator for making me think this one through.
