Baucus Health Care Bill Will Raise Coverage Costs


Guess what… the Senate Finance Committee bill won’t lower the cost of your insurance… it will increase it!

This analysis shows that the cost of the average family coverage is approximately $12,300 today and could be expected to increase to approximately:

  • $15,500 in 2013 under current law and to $17,200 if these provisions are implemented.
  • $18,400 in 2016 under current law and to $21,300 if these provisions are implemented.
  • $21,900 in 2019 under current law and to $25,900 if these provisions are implemented.

This analysis shows that the cost of the average single coverage is $4,600 today and could be expected to increase to:

  • $5,800 in 2013 under current law and to $6,400 if these provisions are implemented.
  • $6,900 in 2016 under current law and to $7,900 if these provisions are implemented.
  • $8,200 in 2019 under current law and to $9,700 if these provisions are implemented.

“These provisions” means the so-far announced provisions of the Senate Finance Committee bill.

Just one more reason to oppose this, and if they do ram it through, to vote the nitwits out!

    This has enraged the White House to the point where they are saying that those statistics are not worth the paper they’re written on.

    Instead, they choose to attack the firm that did the study by labeling them as being shills for “big” insurance and doing the will of those who stand to lose money as a result of the passage of a health care (insurance) reform bill [Article – Dems scramble after warning from health insurers].

    Should this surprise anybody? Obama and leftist Dems in U.S. Congress want to ram through their mystically secret (since they won’t release a draft for consideration) health care (insurance) reform bill in order to get what they want. What they want is going to so radically change America that in their eyes, it will be worth losing a few seats come the next election cycle.

    They realize what they are doing is destroying the country…and they don’t care. As John Milton wrote in his poem, Paradise Lost: “It is better to rule in Hell than serve in Heaven.”
