So... what did health insurance cost 20 years ago?
Let's start with housing.
When my father bought his first house in 1968, it cost $15000. That house, in Alexandria, VA is now worth nearly a half million. But we don't have to come this far.... the house he purchased in 1974 was $45000. If you said he could save $X in 1968, that would mean next to nothing in 1974. BTW, that 1974 house is now worth $300K. 15 yrs ago, my parents retired to Long Island. They paid $180K for their house (that was built in 1947 and sold for $7K) and is now worth $450K.
So telling someone that they will save $3K a year on a potentially $30K/yr policy wouldn't mean much. I know the libs will disagree with my premise, but so be it.
WHO will lose?
CUTS to medicare just as the baby boomers retire. But HEY those illegals will get covered!
What is the most LUDICROUS argument being put forth by the democrats is "well Republican's did" this or that...
SO what we really need if for the Leaders of the Minority parties in the House in the Senate to jump off a bridge.... maybe the Pelosi and Reid will follow!
God help us all if this passes.
