It was sold like it was FREE health care. Well, its not. If you make even a modest income (say $30,000), you'll be paying a premium. You may qualify for “a subsidy” but it won't be 100%; depending on income, it could be 100%, but much more likely a percentage of the premium. SURPRISE!
As much as I fear that once the program is rolled out and enough people lie about their income (no one will be checking!) and get full subsidiaries, they will be hooked - I still want it to go forward.
I think many more people who expected free will have to pay. To someone at $30,000, paying even a couple hundred a month for healthcare will be difficult. This (besides the fact no doctor will see them - will be a hospital insurance policy in practice) may just cause the whole thing to collapse on itself.
Its a close call. Collapsing on itself will kill it once and for all - but, if enough low info voters get hooked; enough might just show up (again) and keep the Dems in the Senate and maybe a Clinton in the White House (God forbid.)
I don’t see it collapsing on itself - they’ll just raise taxes and cut essential spending (aka military) to fund it. For the children, doncha know?
