>> While not being in the same position you are, if my taxes doubled to provide coverage and eliminated all our private health care costs, I'd at least break even. <<Here's the thing: Under the WI proposal originally quoted, if you're retired and not yet 65, your tax would drop to zero! Clearly we can see that's an unacceptable giveaway to the idle well-to-do? I'd like to think that aspect of the plan would make it DOA. If not, I know where I'm FIREing to -- Move to Wisconsin, buy a 12-month temporary policy, and let the working wagepayers pay my freight...Rather than bash private insurers on one side or government programs on the other, how about a little pragmatic thinking which takes real-world considerations into account, including the law of unintended consequences?#29
