If:

1) My family's taxes were raised by $600 a month;

BUT

2) We were then getting healthcare from the government;

3) EVEN IF we were still subject to our current deductibles, copays, etc.

We'd come out even.

EVEN.

I feel like that's the math we should be using.

"You pay $XXX a month in insurance, a typical family would pay $XXX +/- in taxes for healthcare for all but you'd no longer have to pay for private insurance, so your take home pay would remain the same.
