All we really need to know is that it doesn't have a public option and, according to the AP...
Just as auto coverage is now mandatory, so would a requirement that all Americans get health insurance. Penalties for failing to get insurance would start at $750 a year for individuals and $1,500 for families. Households making more than three times the federal poverty level — about $66,000 for a family of four — would face the maximum fines. For families, it would be $3,800, and for individuals, $950.
This makes me throw up in my mouth. Seriously. It's that bad. Either we buy a private health insurance plan from one of the cartels, or we pay these fines. It's absolutely the worst case scenario for a healthcare reform bill.
This Baucus Plan is a massive and compulsory giveaway to the cartels -- shocking in its obvious corruption.
