I don't know that it will get that far. As I understand it, employers won't have to provide health insurance for employees who don't work at least 30 hours per week - I foresee a LOT of employees' hours cut to 30 or less hours per week, working at subsistence levels of income, with 2 (or 3) jobs at or near minimum wage and a considerably lower tax base - IMHO, it's doomed to fail, sometime after the the economy comes dangerously close to failing. I think EVERY American is in for a VERY rough ride.

just my .02.
