    frank manzo keeps doing the math, trying to figure out how he can still offer health insurance to his employees.

    Under the PNHP plan he would pay an 8% tax on their salaries. (rounded up for simplicity). 25 X .08=2 dollars per hour. His employees would pay .50 per hour. The health insurance system wants to charge him 12$/hour. The efficient private market is almost 6 times more expensive.

    Best argument yet for single payer.
