Despite the president's repeated promises that healthcare reform would reduce the price of insurance, a new study shows that the Baucus plan will actually raise the cost of the average family's insurance by $4000 a year while increasing their out-of-pocket medical costs. Plus, millions of people will still have no insurance at all. Which is why the Dems are rushing to vote on their bill today before these numbers can get to the public.
It all goes to remind us that when the government applies its combined wisdom, integrity, and vision to any problem, no matter how complicated and challenging, they can make it a lot worse.
