    Default Obama care to cost each family $20k a year

    IRS: Cheapest Obamacare Plan Will Be $20,000 Per Family | CNS News

    What I want to know is simple... did the American public know this would be the cost and are they willing to accept this cost?

    I've just checked insurance quotes for a husband, wife and three children from Health Insurance - Find Affordable Health Insurance Plans and Buy Medical Coverage Online

    The cheapest quote was for $314 per month, or $3768 per year.

    Something that cheap in the US would only cover basic hospital. It wouldn't include your doctor, specialists or prescriptions.

    I heard a stat last week that the average American over their lifetime, pays about $100,000 into Medicare, but gets $400,000 worth of medical treatment out of Medicare.

    I don't remember the Americans voting specifically for OmamaCare. In fact there are multiple States suing the Federal government over it.

    in all fairness, the population don't appear to be trustworthy enough not to go on shooting rampages....
    as for obamacare, while not familiar with the system...i think moving to a scandanavian, french, german or uk model will result in savings across the board which will lower the cost.
    if you price universal healthcare based on current US prices then no doubt it will cost 20k....but if the price of delivering healthcare falls to european (except ireland) levels then its a totally different story.

    The population???

    320 million Americans, 7 or 8 gun rampages???

    Does not compute!

    And when govt is picking up the tab, prices always go up, always, coz they're spending other people's money,
