IT'S NOT ABOUT DELIVERING HEALTH CARE...

How much ObamaCare costs the average family (Dick Morris and Eileen McGann, 10/16/09, The Hill)

If your household income is $66,000 a year, slightly above the national average, Obama’s healthcare bill will require you to spend 12 percent of your income — about $8,000 a year or almost $700 a month — to buy health insurance before you get any federal subsidy. * Even those making less will have to reach deep into their meager resources to satisfy Obama’s statutory requirement. Families scraping by on only $44,0000 a year will have to pay 7 percent of their income (about $3,000) on insurance.

* Even those making just $33,000 will have to ante up 4.5 percent of their income (about $1500) for health insurance.


...so much as taking your income.
