You said yourself “All you hear about on the news. For instance CNN, Fox Network News, etc. have been pounding that subject into the dirt. Pro and cons all giving their two cents worth. I'm confused. I don't know what to think.”
I have been reading and watching the news and I read and hear constantly that it's going to happen, but not "why" it is thought to happen?
I don’t know if I am for or against this plan as I have more questions than answers. You and many others are happy with the health plan you have. I on the other hand am not happy with our plan, as an employee benefit 50% is paid by my employer. My 50% is $800/month, for a total group cost of $1,600 for a healthy family of 5. If we drop our employer plan I can’t find one for less than the $800 we currently pay, and I just cannot bring myself to go without health insurance. If what might come of this plan will be better, I’m all for it, but how do I know it’s better? How do I know that it will not be better?
