FOX tells you that it will be funded by tax payers that is totally correct Both the house and Senate plans will have tax payers funding and paying more then they did before in ether taxes or fees from the IRS for not having health insurance.
FOX tells you that the government option will be the only option left in the end. BECAUSE It is simple and anyone with any intelligence knows if the government can call all the rules will have a huge advantage. ON TOP OF THAT has a limitless amount of funds (funded by the tax payers), can run into all the debt they want (LOOK AT THE POST OFFICE) and still stay in business. EVEN the CBO says that the House bill will drive millions right from the start into government plans FROM the private company plans they used to have. The simple reason is it will have a 8% penalty and if the company offering insurance pays more then 8% then they will naturally (and have no choice) to push that cost off to the government, thats because most company plans are more then 8% of their pay. It is called competition if their competitor does it they would have no other choice but to do the same to stay competitive. That is just economics 101.
FOX tells you that you will have to pay MORE in premiums and they totally correct once again. I know if you watch any other news you dont know this but even the CBO says that premiums will most likely go up much more then if they were left alone.
